Product Alerts



1 oz. bottle liquid animal rennet for cheese making. Please note, the picture shown is a larger size which is no longer available.

Ingredients: Veal rennet, sodium chloride brine, acetate, propylene glycol, caramel color, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate.

This product contains no GMO ingredients.

Yield: 1/2 teaspoon will set 2 gallons of milk in approximately 45 minutes. Each 2 oz. bottle contains 6 teaspoons which is enough to set 24 gallons of milk.

Instructions: The amount to use will vary depending on the condition of your milk, season, and type of cheese you are making. Dilute required amount of rennet with 20 times its volume of cool, potable water. Immediately add to the milk and stir for 2 minutes to uniformly distribute. (Use an up- and-down motion rather than a stirring motion.) Store rennet in refrigerator. Will keep for 4-6 months if stored properly.

Please note, Animal Rennet has a fairly brief shelf life (2-3 months) per the manufacturer. Animal rennet should be stored in the refrigerator to acheive the recommended 2-3 month shelf life. If you are looking for longer shelf life, Vegetable Rennet can be found here.

    • how long will animal rennet keep, I've had mine in the fridge for about 3 years, should I buy new?
    • Liquid animal rennet lasts about 2-3 months when stored in the fridge. New rennet is recommended. If you want longer life rennet, you might try the vegetable tablets, which have a 3 year lifespan: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/vegetable-rennet-tablets.html

Great Rennet Review by Cheryl

I use this, at this time, for making Creole Cream Cheese, but I also want to start making my own mozzarella and all of the other cheeses. Works great and I have used it 3 times already.

Fantastic Review by Juanita

I used the Liquid Animal Rennet in my first actual attempt at making mozzarella and had fantastic results! I've already recommended Cultures for Health to friends on FaceBook.

Does the Job Review by pbparsons

Recently made my first 'batch' of cheese - Mozzarella. Came out great. AM now encouraged to delve into more complex cheeses like blue and camenbert.

works well Review by Bekah

I've used this so far for only one cheese (a chevre) but it worked very well and made a nice, firm, dry soft cheese.
