Either boil the milk to drive off some of the water (make it more concentrated) or add some dried milk to the milk. Give me a little while and I'll come up with the amounts.

Edited to add: recipe says three tablespoons of dried milk to one litre of milk.

OK, I know it's several months since this was posted - but I've never looked in the "Recipes" section before! I make goat's milk yoghurt at least a couple of times a week. When it's finished in the yoghurt maker, it's horribly thin and watery. So I put it into a colander lined with a cheesecloth, cover it (either by twisting the corners of the cheesecloth over the top, or putting a plate or cling film over), sit the colander in a bowl or basin and put it in the fridge at least overnight. The whey drains off and you have a lovely thick yoghurt left in the cheesecloth. The longer you leave it, the thicker it becomes.

You can use Activia as a starter culture, by the way.

It's worth a try, though. Everyone who tastes it says that it's better than any you can get in the shops. You could try it in something smaller - a sieve over a small basin, for example. If you don't have a cheesecloth then any small cotton cloth will do - even a handkerchief (but best to boil it first).

Afterwards, you can add jam, fresh fruit, sugar or honey - but keep a little bit back as a starter for the next batch.
