We have a similar issue in the winter, our apartment is officially 70* but our heat is wonky, the outside temperature has to drop for about 12 hours before our heat kicks on. So making yogurt in the winter can be tricky. A preheated then turned off oven has worked better for us than the counter. But we can get over a quart of very thick strained yogurt from 1/2 a gallon of milk.
