I ordered this when I found goats milk in my local store. So far, have only made the chevre, but it's turned out great every time and will try the french style soon!

The goat cheese kit is the easiest kit to start with (I make the chevre). You only need a a large pot a thermometer and the way I do it draining it with a cheese cloth lined cullender (the cheese cloth is included in the kit). I get goat milk from my local Trader Joe's (unlike most goat milk I find the Trade Joe's goat milk is not ultra pasteurized). I bring the milk up to temperature add the powder and then place the covered pot in the oven (it is an electric oven with no pilot light and I leave the light off). In the oven the temperature will stay pretty close if the temperature drops turn on the light (an incandescent bulb will bring the oven up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit so don't leave the light on to long). After about 16 hours I drain it in the cullender for about 7hrs which gives the chevre a cream cheese consistency. During the draining process the cullender sits nicely in a bowl that I empty it as required (when the whey reaches the bottom of the cullender).

Couldn't be easier!

Staff has been very helpful in answering my questions about using powdered goats milk to make cheese and also substituting sea salt instead of regular salt. I'm now ready to whip up my first batch.

Everything was great! Only feedback is that the recipe lacked in directions/details about the finishing stage(s) of making the cheese...it just said "salt and refrigerate'...When I read the recipe in the back of the pamphlet, there was much more description of the last steps the wasn't exactly 'what to do to finish up', but it was enough that I could wing'd it and guess. Also, there was no mention of 'high altitude' adjustments. Thereafter, sampling the cheese was 'goat cheese' so I guess I did it right.

I admit I was a bit wary to try my hand at cheese-making, but discovered the New England Cheesemaking Supply Company through an Alice Waters book (My Pantry) and bought this kit. I bought a good thermometer, made sure everything was perfectly clean, followed the instructions, and wowed myself and my friends with some terrific cheese! And now I'm hooked...

This kit gives you loads of information about making goat cheese. A lot of my other cheese making books just skim over goat milk, but this book includes much more details about the differences in goat milk. Some of these differences are important to know when making cheeses. I learned a lot! The rennet in the kit is awesome. I have been searching for this product locally, but there are no local supplies. Shipping was very speedy.

Great kit!

<p>I just want to say how terrific the recipes for the soft Goat Cheese kit turned out. Both the chevre and the french style soft goat cheese turned out wonderful, and mmm, mmm were delicious! Everyone was impressed, and they all like it. My niece wants a pound of chevre for Christmas. I told her maybe next year. Now I have all this cheese, well four rounds of soft goat cheese, It's good until next Monday, yumm and thank you.</p>

Needs a tweak for the absolute beginner

Rating:

Pros:
  • Good introduction to cheesemaking
Cons:
  • Pricey
  • needs cheese salt
From: California
I purchased this kit and was generally pretty happy with it. The description states that the kit supplies everything you need but the milk, but it contains no cheese salt. I was well into making my first batch of cheese when I discovered I had to stop everything, check the website to determine what cheese salt was, as opposed to regular salt, and run out and buy non-iodized salt. For the price of the kit, it wouldn't be that hard to include a little bit of salt. The booklet could be a bit more clear that it's supplying culture and rennet for two very different types of processes - direct culture which you just add to the milk, and fresh culture which you have to make ahead of time with skim milk, and freeze. If you're a complete beginner, as I was, it takes some study to figure out. That said, I like the product and will be buying more supplies from New England Cheesemaking.

I visited a local farm with a lawn sign advertising "raw milk". When she asked me to meet her girls, I was stunned to meet goats instead of cows, so I rolled with it and the exuberant farmer introduced me to each of her goats. It was obvious they are content, humanely cared for and healthy. The farmer told me all the things I could do with goat milk, including ordering supplies from NE Cheese Supply to start my own culture. I was intrigued. Two weeks later, I ordered my first kit and bought one gallon of fresh goat milk to try my hand at Chèvre cheese. It was so easy, I feel like the cheese made itself. All the ingredients and special material was in the kit. I had no worries!! It was easy, fun, and I have over 2 pounds of sweet creamy delicious cheese in my freezer to enjoy with my hubby at any time I choose. PLUS, I still have enough culture to make four more batches PLUS the rennet and start-up culture needed to make french style goat cheese (ANOTHER adventure!) all for less than $26.00. AMAZINGLY easy and complete. Thank you very much!!
