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.

Thistle mozzarella

I used this rennet to make my last batch of mozzarella because Jim said that thistle cheese develops complex flavors as it ages. My cheese did not set in the usual hour. At this point it was still just milk. I had to wait 2 hours to develop soft curds, but because of a time crunch, I moved on to cutting the curd. This may have been my fault, because I made my mozzarella using my regular recipe, only substituting the thistle rennet for the regular animal rennet that I use, although I did use Jim's recommended 6 mL's. I may have also failed to stir the rennet in thoroughly enough. In the end the cheese still stretched beautifully. Unfortunately I have no idea how the flavor changes over time because the cheese was used within 2 days.

Very Impressed

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.
