Check out the feedback from many happy cheesemakers and see how my shop began in 2009 in this cool film Etsy made! http://vimeo.com/26600153
The Deluxe Cheese Kit is all of the cheese kits in this shop rolled into one. Like most bulk purchases, it is more economical. It is the ultimate starter kit and an amazing housewarming gift.
Note that you get a thermometer and a variety of 4 cheese molds!
3 Instruction/Recipe Handbooks and Unlimited Email Support
2 yards Butter Muslin/Fine Mesh Cheesecloth
1 Glass Dairy Thermometer (alcohol not mercury)
5 Vegetable Rennet Tablets (only mozzarella requires it = 20 batches)
4 Cheese Molds (in a variety of shapes, may vary slightly from photo)
Non GMO, Gluten-Free Citric Acid
Pure Non-Iodized Cheese Salt
This huge kit includes enough of the above ingredients for at least 30 batches of cheese (batch yield varies from 2 lbs of ricotta to 6oz. of goat cheese).
If you're like me, you'll want to try to make all of these cheeses in one weekend, with this kit, you can!
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.
I opened my shop on Etsy in January 2009 and I'm always improving and simplifying for your success! I was lucky enough to get a short film made about my business by Etsy, check it out! 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. Oh and, this kit works with goat's milk too. You can also use lowfat milk or nonfat milk (yield and creaminess will be noticeably different with nonfat).
I know this is a lot of info. but I get a lot of questions! ;) Got more?
Please see my policies page:
or my website:
FOOD SAFETY AND HANDLING: Please note that my kits and their supplies are hand-poured, hand-folded and assembled in a food-safe, fully-licensed space. The food items are all gluten-free but packaged in a room that comes in contact with wheat, soy, corn, nuts and other food allergens (with serious cleanings in between of course). The kits are also vegetarian-friendly. Just so you know. Ok! That's all I can think of. Dive in!
Enjoy making cheese!
