    • Can I use this kit to make farmer's cheese as well? Seems like it is in the same family of cheeses....
    • Yes, you could, as Farmer Cheese is made with the Mesophilic Direct-Set Culture. Here is our recipe for Farmer Cheese:

    • Can you use Lactose free milk?
    • While lactose free milk may in theory work for some fresh cheeses, there are very few brands that are not Ultra-Pasteurized. Ultra-pasteurized milk does not culture or set well and so generally gives poor results.

    • When making cheeses with the fresh cheese kit, what is a suitable ambient temperature for making and for allowing it to sit? I don't see any. But I thought I recalled seeing for some cheese making that you needed to let it sit and age at around 45-55 degrees (a wine cooler would work well for this yes?) but maybe that was for hard cheeses?
    • Each cheese in the Fresh Cheese Kit requires a different temperature for culturing. Once cultured, the cheese should be stored in the refrigerator and consumed with in a week or two, according to the instructions. Soft cheeses such as the ones made with this kit do not require aging.

    • Can you use goat milk to make all these cheeses with this kit?
    • Yes, you sure can! You might have slightly different results for some recipes, since goat milk is slightly different from cow milk, but it will work just fine!

    • can you use raw milk and how does that affect shelf life if any?
    • Raw milk may be used to make all the cheeses in this kit. The shelf life is not affected by using raw milk.

    • How many packets of Mesophilic Direct-Set Cheese Culture do you get in this kit?
    • This comes with 8 packets of Mesophilic Direct-Set Cheese Culture. Use as directed by your recipe or at the following rate: 1 packet per gallon of milk, 2 packets per 2-5 gallons, or 4 packets per 5-10 gallons.

    • Can you make cheese with milk substitutes?
    • Our cheese kits are designed for use with dairy milks. Non-dairy milks will not produce a satisfactory product.
    • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes   No

    • Do I need any other supplies, that do not come with this kit, other than milk?
    • You just need milk! Enjoy!

Looking forward to using it Review by Merry

I have not made cheese with it yet; I want to make it with grass-fed cows milk, and it's a bit of an investment. The kit appears to be complete; I did unpack it immediately and put the starter in the freezer until I can make the cheese. I am looking forward to having some great cheese!

Great quality and instructions, but price is high Review by ssfarmer

Our first goat cheese was excellent - the instructions and quality of the kit were exceptional. I hesitated buying the kit because of the high price, but I was inexperienced and hoped this would help me be successful. It did, and our B&B guests really enjoyed the fromage blanc. I'll look for a more economical way to get into other cheeses.

mostly pleased Review by mo

I have made two kinds of cheese thus far with this kit. The fromage blanc came out very well, the feta seems to need more practice. The instruction booklet is very clear, though I noticed with the fromage recipe, the ingredient list called for rennet, but there were no instructions in the recipe as to how or when it was to be used.

Response from CFH: The fromage blanc recipe in the kit booklet does omit the rennet. We apologize for the error and will have that corrected right away.

first time makeing cottage cheese Review by doranu77

everything was in the kit, BUT the thermometer was way to small, hard to hold and even harder to read it. I would suggest buying your own from Wal-Mart.
