This carefully assembled kit includes a re-usable thermometer and 2 super cute, authentic goat cheese molds.
Your DIY Fresh Goat Cheese Kit Includes:
Instruction Booklet and Unlimited Email Support
2 Small French Cheese Molds
Fine Mesh Cotton Cheesecloth (also called butter muslin)
Glass Dairy Thermometer (alcohol not mercury)
Non-GMO Citric Acid
Iodine-Free, Pure Cheese Salt
Just add 2 quarts of goat milk and in one hour you will be eating and sharing your very own fancy goat cheese!
Each kit makes 10 batches of cheese (about 6-8 oz per batch, 2 small wheels) so you have plenty of supplies to experiment with different herbs, shapes and recipes.
NOTE: This kit makes an easy, beginners' goat cheese similar to ricotta or other farmer cheeses. It is light and mild. Perfect for an appetizer or after dinner treat with some fruit! Chevre means goat in French so it covers an endless variety of cheeses made of goat milk. The results with this kit will not be like the pungent aged French cheeses you may have encountered. Those take a bit more experience, more aging time, rennet and cultures. My kits focus on simple success for newbies! I may offer more advanced kits in the future but for now, this is a great start. This chevre is tangy, very versatile and great for beginners!
Use the included molds to shape your cheese or hand roll small logs in herbs and enjoy!
A little about me:
I take your success in making cheese very seriously. I test and fine-tune recipes and each kit repeatedly for 1-2 years before I launch anything (I ask family and friends to help test too :). I teach several classes monthly and get to see lots of students learn and arrive at cheese in all sorts of ways- so I am well-prepared for most questions and can troubleshoot with you any time you need.
Please peruse my feedback from happy customers and watch the Etsy film made about the beginnings of my shop (I bottle-feed a baby goat! :). I opened my shop on Etsy in January 2009 and I'm always improving and simplifying for your success!. http://vimeo.com/26600153.
A little about milk:
You do not need raw milk to make cheese although it works great with these kits. You can use regular pasteurized milk from the grocery store as long as it is not ultra pasteurized or ultra-heat pasteurized. Even some of the large organic brands now do this to milk. Its only benefit is a long shelf life. Find a milk that you like and works, then stick with it. You can also use lowfat milk or nonfat milk though yield and creaminess will be noticeably different with less fat.
