About This Product
IMPORTANT NOTE: This rennet is no longer available since it is very similar to the Double Strength ChyMax Extra Rennet. There wasn't enough demand to stock this rennet.
Liquid rennet is used in cheesemaking as a coagulation aid that separates whey from the milk curds. It is a vital part of the cheesemaking process, used in cheeses from Parmesan to Manchego. This rennet comes in liquid form, and is suitable for home cheesemaking. This rennet is quadruple strength, so be aware of its high concentration when using it in recipes. A good rule of thumb is using half the amount your recipe calls for, to account for its strength. The product is non-GMO, and all natural.
This rennet is Kosher, halal and vegetarian, making it suitable for all kinds of dietary restrictions. It is packaged using food-grade sanitizers, ensuring that other rennet does not come into contact with this rennet or any of its containers. Vegetarian rennets like this one are vegetable-based. The coagulating properties of rennet are often used in making fresh kefir grains, along with starter culture that can be found in our cheesemaking kits. The rennet comes in four sizes: 1 ounce, 4 ounces, 1 pint, 1 quart. The range of sizes makes it easy to find one that is appropriate for your needs and the amount of cheese you plan to make.
This liquid rennet can be used in all kinds of cheeses, including brie. The formation of curds gives the first glimpse of what will eventually become cheese. For a smooth introduction to making brie, try a brie cheesemaking kit that contains instructions along with all the ingredients and molds needed for the process. The Cheesemaker has all the ingredients, equipment and accessories for expert and amateurs alike to make delicious batches of cheese in all varieties.
