and it is floating around in the milk. For some reason I had the impression it would sit at the bottom of the glass. I left it in there for about 26 hours when it tasted like yeasty milk so I am on batch #2. I expected the initial yeastiness, but not the floating. Is this right?

We just got ours too, and it floats at the top of the milk. So I think that's right! Our first batch looked a little odd and clumpy to me, so I thought I would wait to try the next batch, but DH tried it and said it tasted "like fermented milk." He liked it and drank the whole thing! I am blessed to have a DH who will try anything. We'll see how the 2nd batch turns out!
