Gourmet Home Dairy Kit (K7)
Directions ask the impossible
I just got the kit and brought home a gallon of milk specifically to make the fromage blanc. I followed the directions and heated my entire gallon of milk to 86F, but then the directions say to add the warm milk to the yogoterm, but it won't hold an entire gallon of milk. Considering that I purchased the fromage blanc cultures and instructions in a kit with the yogotherm, this volume mismatch seems like a major oversight.
So much fun
I have been having a blast with the Gourmet Home Dairy kit -- the kefir makes terrific cheese, and I use the whey to make beet kvass as mentioned in Sally Fallons cookbook, Nourishing Traditions it is divine. The fromage blanc has been a major hit with family and friends who have tasted it, and I am trying out the fromagina, now. Creme fraiche and sour cream -- wow. Even the buttermilk has been tasty, this from someone who has not been a big fan of the commercial stuff.
