Add approximately 1/2 - 1 tsp to 1 gallon of milk, at the same time as the culture, and stir thoroughly, this liquid rennet needs to be stirred longer than other varieties.
Allow to set for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, to achieve a firm curd. If the final cheese has a bitter taste, use slightly less rennet on the next batch.
Note: The amount will vary on the condition of your milk, season and type of cheese you are making.

I am actually new to Cheese Making but have done the simple one of using vinegar which is awsome and easy but you get a hint of vingar in your curd this Thisle you don't taste at all and I think I actually added a bit more than needed my curds were sweet and yummy no odd flavor. I haven't tried any other rennet yet but I am very pleased with the Thistle
I used 1/2 tsp. plus 4 drops of thistle rennet in 1 gal. of goat milk. It made 20 oz. of wonderful smooth creamy, lemony fromage blanc.
