Use the freshest milk you can find, local milk is always best, when available.
Milk that has been pasteurized above 170F can be problematic for curd formation, when making 30 minute mozzarella. If you see problems with curd formation, we recommend contacting the dairy and asking about their milk processing temperatures.
This kit can be made with any type of low heat processed milk, including goat milk and powdered milk.

It was incredibly satisfying to make my own mozzarella but a little bit lengthy in all the steps.
I have used this kit before and have always had success with it. However I moved from dairy country of PA to a city in North Texas. Husband brought home a gallon of milk from store for me to use, but the cheese did not make. Hopped on internet and have located a raw milk dairy an hours drive - no matter it is the only way to go so I can once again have the wonderful fresh cheese using Ricki's good stuff.
This was so easy to use and simple to follow.
This item arrived quickly and exactly as described. Very simple kit with everything you need for the process. Just purchase milk and you are good to go. I’m looking forward to trying other kits in the future.
This worked really well for making mozzarella with raw milk goat and cow. I ended up buying the liquid rennet instead of the tabs that come with it.
