Cheese/Yoghurt Making - FAQs
How do I start making cheese?
We always encourage people to start with a small investment and proceed from there. For this we have developed several kits for the home cheese maker. Our Mozzarella/Ricotta kit is the absolutely easiest way to start because the cheeses are all soft, requiring no aging. .
The popular Basic Hard Cheese Kit is a good way to start if you would like to begin making hard cheeses. (You will need to order coatings for the aged cheeses) This kit contains a mold for forming the cheese. All you need to do is find a jar lid or plate that fits inside and a little weight to place on top. (We do not recommend that beginners buy a press until they have made a few batches this way.)Read more
