We used to buy the Whole Foods brand goat crumbles until I decided I could do a better job of it. I take 1/2 gallon of goat milk from my herd share agreement, warm it up to 98.6 degrees, add 1/2 packet of chèvre culture, and 4 drops of Organic Vegetable Rennet. After 12 hours or so, I drain off all the whey I can, then hang the cheese up in the fridge to further drain and dry for a few days. Once it is fairly dry I cut up the lump with a pastry cutter, add some sea salt, and maybe a little dried dill and/or garlic. Without the rennet, it's just not the same. Bill Gates's money couldn't buy better goat crumbles.
I made a number of different cheeses with this rennet and it set up wonderfully every time!
Great rennet that only needs 10 drops/gallon. Easy to use plastic bottle with dropper top. Organic and vegetable based so vegetarian friends have no qualms about eating my Mozzarella!
I have been making cheese for awhile now and this rennet has performed consistently. While milk quality has changed Using floculation tests. And factors I am able to cut a clean break on every cheese at the correct time for the type of cheese I am makinig. I think this rennet is 850 IMFU. So its double most others. I like being able to use the right dose, and knowing I will get my curd at very close to the expected time when I use a consistent milk quality.
We used the mozzarella for pizza and lasagna and it was the best we have ever had. I also made ricotta and it was the best. It was a really fun experience learning to make cheese. The products worked great, and the process was easy.
