You'll want to sanitize your Instant Pot before you begin. This of course keeps your yogurt sanitary (especially when you think about it sitting in there for hours) but it also helps to avoid any other smells or tastes being added to the yogurt. I highly recommend grabbing another Instant Pot sealing ring if yours smells like meat or other strong smells.
Add 1/4 gallon of the milk to the Instant Pot insert. Mix in the Greek yogurt. The plain Greek yogurt is needed because it contains the live yogurt cultures.
Next, mix in the vanilla and honey. This is optional, if you want plain yogurt then leave out the vanilla and honey and skip to step 3. Once the honey is dissolved, mix in the remaining 1/4 gallon of milk (it's easier to mix this way).
Tightly cover the Instant Pot with a lid. I prefer this silicone lid, but any lid is fine, if you use the Instant Pot lid be sure to leave the pressure valve open so it doesn't build pressure.
Press the yogurt button twice to bypass the boil stage. Let the yogurt incubate for 8-9 hours. The longer the yogurt incubates, the more tart it will get. My yogurt wasn't tart at all incubating for 8 hours.
Once the incubation is done, remove the Instant Pot insert and place it in the refrigerator overnight. Do not stir the yogurt or it will break apart the enzymes and become runny.
The next day, remove the yogurt from the refrigerator and transfer it an air tight storage container. Store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. Serve with fruit and homemade granola.
