Acids. Adding acidic ingredients like lemon juice, vinegar and even fruits can curdle both milk and yogurt. Using whole-fat yogurts reduces the curdling effect, and cooking at a low temperature can offset the effects of acid.

Can you incubate yogurt too long?
Incubated at 115°F/46°C, yogurt will coagulate within about three hours, but if left too long it can easily curdle. If for some reason your yogurt fails to coagulate at all, which can happen, you do not need to discard the milk; you can easily turn it into a simple acid-curdled cheese.
