War should I do if it says to not to heat milk when making raw milk yogurt?

I make yogurt often. When I use pasteurised milk I healt it to a certain temperature and wait until it cools to a certain temperature and with raw milk I don’t heat it I just put it straight in a jar with yogurt because it says it is preferable not to because it will destroy its molecule structure. I did both and doesn’t both the same ways. When using pastured milk it does the job but when using raw it doesn’t work the same. The first a change occurred the second nothing happened. I was wondering what I should do when using raw milk for it to work the same way?

    The heating of the milk is to kill unfriendly bacteria that can mess up the taste of the yogurt. Did you add the "start" live yogurt to the second batch? So, check the internet for whole, unpasteurized milk yogurt recipes.

    I guess you better heat the raw milk then, huh?
