Not to be discouraging but the first try for me did not set up well. Most likely the whole milk I used was not the best to use for mozzarella. Since then, I have found a source for whole non-homogenized organic milk. I am not able to buy non pasteurized milk locally. Some parts of the instructions were not clear so watching a you tube video helped. I did like the kit.

As a first time mozzarella maker, I had a hard time making out the directions provide. I had to go on the net to clarify the times and amounts. If you could simplify your process and eliminate the extraneous copy, it would help. My first batch of cheese tastes great, however the texture of the final product was a bit gritty. I will that my next batch will be much better.

This is the way to go if you are just starting to make cheese. I have been doing it for a year but found this kit cost less than buying individual items.
