An Instant Pot acts as an incubator for the yogurt, keeping the temperature around 110°F for several hours, which is something stovetop pressure cookers can’t do.
Can I use Greek yogurt as a starter?
You only need a little bit of yogurt to use as a starter, and milk for the ingredients. It’s important to purchase plain (unsweetened) yogurt that contains live and active cultures. I don’t recommend using low-fat or skim milk. To make your yogurt even richer, you can also add cream.

If too much starter culture is used, the bacteria will be crowded and run out of food (lactose) before the yogurt is set. Too much starter can produce a sour taste, rather than the desired tart taste.

If your yogurt is foamy, stringy or smells yeasty like beer or bread, it is likely contaminated by yeast. This can be yeast from baking, or wild yeast naturally present in your home and on your hands. To prevent it from happening, make sure to practice good hygiene in the kitchen, using clean equipment.
