This was my first time making cheese. I used the starter to make Quark and the result was excellent. Very easy process and the cheesemaking book was very helpful. Thank you!
First time using the chèvre culture, it worked really well. The cheese was absolutely delicious!
I have been making chèvre with this starter for 8 years. My cheese has set up every time but twice in all those years and I make 2 -4 pounds of chèvre a week! In fact it comes out so well that I hardly make any other kind of goat cheese.
I've made chevre using lemon juice and vinegar, but I've never been happy with it. It's too dry and tangy. With this culture, the hardest part of the whole process is getting the milk to the right temperature...and that's not all that hard. I've made a few converts with this cheese. Several people who tell me they hate goat cheese LOVE this.
Everything at 9,500' is a challenge, so I was a little bit worried that this wouldn't work. My raw goat milk chevre is amazing! Thanks for making it so easy!
