I bought this set and am generally happy with it. Unfortunately, the Fromage Blanc recipe calls for 1 gallon of milk when the Yogotherm will not hold that amount of product. Either the recipe should call for a lesser amount of milk or it should not be included.
Few years ago I picked up the yogurt kit and ended up giving it to a family member. Finally decided to replace it and have some more fun!
While I am not yet able to use all the parts of this kit (need a cream separator for my goats' milk) I have been using the yogurt culture, Yogotherm, and the buttermilk cultures a lot. I prefer the Creamy Yogurt culture over the Sweet culture, but am glad I tried both to compare. There are quite a few recipes for using what you make. The Herbs du Provence should be used sparingly IMO, as it almost overpowered the fromage blanc. Overall, I am glad I got this kit.
This was a gift and I found it easy to use and have made some delicious soft cheeses, kefir and yogurt. I was more impressed with customer service's response time to an emailed question and concern regarding a few recipes that came with the kit.
I have been having a blast with the Gourmet Home Dairy kit -- the kefir makes terrific cheese, and I use the whey to make beet kvass as mentioned in Sally Fallons cookbook, Nourishing Traditions it is divine. The fromage blanc has been a major hit with family and friends who have tasted it, and I am trying out the fromagina, now. Creme fraiche and sour cream -- wow. Even the buttermilk has been tasty, this from someone who has not been a big fan of the commercial stuff.
