I figure you could get a more potent probiotic supplement/drink and you would essentially have an indefinite supply which could give your wallet a break. It's also interesting because of the potential for creating customized probiotic beverages/foods

Only lactobacillus, or what I believe to be lactobacillus, in my homemade yogurt.
If someone doesn't eat the last of it, the yogurt I make is indeed an unending source of fresh live culture.
I have had poor luck using mixed multi-strain cultures for making yogurt, or in changing from cow's milk to any other type. Obviously someone knows how to do it, but not me and my Salton yogurt machine. I have experimented a lot, and end up with hot, slightly sour milks, which I discard for fear of what I've grown or spoiled.
Milk experiments can go very badly. Listeria will kill you.

Google Kefir!!! Easy to make and packed full with probiotics. And apparently many more probiotics make it through the stomach to where they are neeed if mixed with a good prebiotic such as potato starch.
Long thread here which covers lots of your question.
