I like making recipes for my cheese with old style ingredients and this was the first type of rennet used. I love how quickly it works and to me it does have a better flavor.
I love how long a 2oz bottle lasts me, I've been making 1 to 2 three-gallon wheels each Sunday since the new year and one 2oz bottle lasts me months. However, I have noticed that when I use cheap gallons of milk from Meijer or Walmart (gallons that cost less than $2) sometimes the suggested dose of rennet does not set a good curd for quite some time. Usually this is remedied by increasing the heat of the recipes some, but I do think that increasing the suggested dose amount per batch is a good idea unless using a higher quality of milk, that way you don't have to mess too much with the recommended temperatures of various recipes. I just ordered Thistle rennet to use with some home-grown raw goat's milk and I'm eager to compare the results against the standard Animal Rennet, but as someone who's been making cheese for about a year the Animal Rennet from New England Cheese Making Supply Co. has very rarely let me down.
I had been using Junkett rennet tablets, but thought I'd give this liquid rennet a try. One drop is all I need to set a half gallon of whole milk for quark cheese. This took less than 10 hours. Am very pleased.
This rennet works quickly, and efficiently, I will definitely buy again. Arrived a few days earlier than predicted !!
I purchased the larger size, it arrived quick and I am enjoying making my cheeses.
