    • Will soy milk work with these kits?
    • I'm sorry, but these kits will only work with fresh or regular pasteurized dairy (cow or goat) milk. Soy milk works very differently. For a resource on making vegan cheese, please see the book, Artisan Vegan Cheese here: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/artisan-vegan-cheese-book.html

A lot missing to actually produce a hard cheese Review by Cheese

This kit is missing a lot of essentials for making a hard cheese. For instance a cheese press is essential for making a hard cheese, you can't acheive enough lbs of pressure without it, and this kit only comes with a cheese shaping mold (nothing to press it with, and you cannot use "common kitchen items" as described in the product details to acheive enought lbs of pressure for hard cheese). Second, when aging hard cheese the book reccommends brushing it with a liquid wax, and then the hard wax. This kit only comes with a hard wax. The vegetable rennet contains nasty preservatives, so if you're concerned about that sort of thing you probably have to buy "organic" rennet to avoid it. Overall it falls far short of actually being able to make a hard cheese successfully. I realize now that a hard cheese kit would have to include a lot more and be more expensive, but that is what is needed to acheive success. I do feel bad about having to do a bad review, but I was disappointed.

Response from CFH: Kit booklet includes information on how to press cheese with common kitchen items. We do carry organic vegetable rennet separately, if that is preferred. Please contact Customer Support for advice or troubleshooting assistance.
