Calf rennet


  • Strong and fast
From: Sierra Foothills
Wow, what a difference! I've been using vegetable rennet for decades on all my cheeses. Then I read "The Art of Natural Cheesemaking" by David Asher. He uses kefir and calf rennet for all his cheeses. I bought the calf rennet because of his recommendation. It is a much stronger rennet. I probably used too much the first time...a smidge (a measuring amount on the little spoon set) and the milk curdled in a few hours. I actually started draining after 6 hrs, and only drained for 1.5 hours before salting and putting it in the molds. Because the curds were tougher, the whey drained out much quicker. I took it out of the molds after 10 hrs and into the cooler. Will see how it aged in a week. Calf rennet is nothing like vegetable rennet! I am looking forward to tasting the cheese next week.
