Do just started to make the farm house cheddar and ricotta. Well first thing. I used the whey from the cheddar and added a quart of milk. Ended up maybe a little more than a half cup. Second which is the biggest issue. If you don’t have a cheese press don’t get this. And it doesn’t come with a lid. Direction says to use a brink which is far from sanitary. So you have to find something for a kid and is capable of hold 20lbs safely which in my case stacking things.
Loved it! Love the fact that everything is in there. This was great for someone who has never made cheese. We have a book and after reading what all you have to do, we had decided it was to much work and we had a hard time understanding how to do it. But your directions were great, easy to follow! My granddaughter is just learning to read and was able to read and understand what to do. Thank you for great products, kits, and supplies. It's nice to be able to go to 1 website and get everything you need, not here there and everywhere.
Love this company! It's like doing business with friends, they are so helpful and encouraging!
My friend and I started with the feta cheese saved the whey, then moved to Monterey Jack saving the whey again. This gave us 1.5 gallons of whey so we proceeded to use the whey to make ricotta cheese added herbs de province to the cheese. Amazing, absolutely wonderful. Easy to follow directions and the finied product is amazing.
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...
