Easy and accurate!

I only wish that I started with liquid rennet! This is so much easier and , by far, more accurate than pills or granules. Most recipes that I use are based on using the liquid as well. A sure win!

Love it!

I bought this to make skyr - it works wonderfully! Although I've never entertained the idea of making cheese, now I'm excited to try it! I'm so glad I found this product and this company. Customer service, shipping, Web site, e-newsletters (complete with cheese recipes) has all been fantastic!

Excellent, reliable product

I ordered this rennet for a biology enzyme lab, and it worked exceptionally. I used more than recommended for cheese making, since my focus was the chymosin activity, but it set the milk quite rapidly even after only 30 minutes at some temperatures. It produces consistent and good results for milk coagulation/ cheese making, and the delivery arrived fairly fast as well :)

We ordered rennet, which was shipped to us in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada on January 25. It arrived this morning, February 8th. With Covid impacting mail service and customs it has taken longer than hoped, but we are delighted it has arrived! Cheers, Inez Gibbons
