Perfect rennet for newbie

I am newbie in cheese making, about 6 month of experience and just half dozen of cheese types. So the review has limited value. How to compare rennet? Due to lack of experience and education, I thought it's better to see rennet behavior with minimum of possible accompanying factors. Therefore, I make halloumi cheese with every new rennet. Why halloumi? - It is made just from milk + rennet + salt. I add a little CaCl2 too. - It takes just few hours from process begin till result ready to taste. - My family likes halloumi for its texture, and for variety of use: eat it as is, grill it, fry it, in salad, in sandwich, etc. The comparison: So far I tried 3 rennets, the chymosin rennet is the fourth for me. - I prefer liquid form of rennet versus powder, paste, or tablets. Liquid is easy to dose while keeping sterile conditions. Check. - It sets cow milk in less than 40 minutes: 5 drops + 50ml distilled water per 2L of milk. Faster than alternatives I used, which took 1-3 hours to set the milk. Check. - I has no influence of cheese flavour. Absolutely. For good or bad. Good for me thus. Check. Bottom line: I will buy the chymosin rennet again for its ease-of use, zero-taste, fast work, and very little/economic dosage!
