The weight of the finished product depends greatly on the creaminess of the milk. a really creamy milk works the best and will give a greater yield.
I used 1 ltr of full cream long-life milk and got around 170g, finished weight.
You can easily double the amount...just follow the recipe in terms of bringing to a simmer etc.
