I bought this thinking I was going to just make farmers cheese.. Boy was I surprised that I had 8 choices of cheese that I could make from that kit. It was the best deal, I would recommend this to all new homemade cheese makers.. Cause that is what I am...
Best cheese kit ever!
So easy to use! Everything is there for the beginner who is wanting to learn. I tell everyone about this kit! It is worth every penny!!
Make sure not to use raw milk!
The kit is good for beginners, like it says. However, it does not say what to do if you are using raw milk. I used this kit the first time I made cheese and have used raw milk each time I have made cheese. They assume that beginners will not use raw milk, which drastically alters some of the recipes. If you are using pasteurized milk, then this kit is great to use. It comes with plenty of ingredients, however I wish it came with more cheesecloth and a little more specific instructions as sometimes they can be hard to follow.
Its my first kit. So some of the cheese was hard to make? Why send a size small rubber gloves? No man wears that size. Some of the explanations are off. How long should it take to heat the milk? I'm still doing it. No cheese wax in kit? Ordered another kit.
Easy and Delicious! :)
I've wanted to make cheese for a long time now, but haven't felt confident enough to just do it on my own. I decided to give Ricki's Basic Cheese Making Kit a try, and I am so happy with it! We just made Farmhouse Cheddar yesterday (one of the recipes included in the kit), and it was fun, easy, and a wonderful experience. The curds were scrumptious, and I just can't wait to try the aged cheese in a few months. I'm so grateful for the New England Cheese Making Supply Co. - I'll be making cheese regularly after this. :)
