  1. citric acid 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Mar 2015

    I have been having trouble. I have recipe for a quick mozzarella that the finish is done in microwave. I have tried 4 batches and none have worked. I was getting the citric acid from another place and it worked fine. I used 2 1/2 tsp. per 2 gallon of milk. Does yours work the same for that amount of milk. Thanks.

    From Steve/thecheeesemaker.com: The correct amount of citric acid to use to acidify the milk to the correct pH of between 5.2 and 5,4 is 1.5 tsp. per gallon on milk. The curd will not stretch when the pH is too low (using too little citric acid) and the curd will fall apart when the pH is too low (using too much citric acid). We do not recommend using the microwave method as it is nearly impossible to determine how much heat is being used. We recommend using hot water(180-190f) to pour over the curds prior to stretching. Check out our tested recipe online for good results: http://www.thecheesemaker.com/content/mozz_ricotta_basic_kit.pdf

    After discontinuing microwave method: "Morning Steve, I made 2 double batches of Mozzarella using your recipe and using hot water not the microwave and it worked. Thank you so much for your help". Charlene

  4. Check storage bags for holes 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jun 2014

    Great product. Problem I had was plastic bag product was in had a hole in the side of the bag which resulted in about 2 oz of citric acid leaking all over the inside of the box creating a mess and loss of product.

    -'We apologize for the hole in bag, probably caused in shipping. We're sending you a 2 oz. bag to replace what you loss. Thanks for the update'. -Steve Shapson
