I made my first batch of yogurt.  I checked the temp and it got to 140-150.  I couldn't find a dimmer switch yet and wanted to make it!  I will try to purchase one tomorrow.  Is it safe to eat???  It looks fine, but I will await an answer..
Thanks  (that was the temp of the water)

It should be safe to eat, but you might have pasteurized your bacteria out of existence.

Agreed, you'll probably get no probiotic effect from it whatsoever. I wonder if they had time to break down the lactose before they died?

Maybe you could cook something with it, like the cheesecake. Or make some frozen yogurt. Cooking and freezing kill the bacteria anyway, so it wouldn't be any loss. However, if there's any lactose left, it could potentially bother you.
