Set your milk to make any kind of cheese at home with this all-natural, organic dry calf rennet powder

About This Product

All natural, organic dry calf rennet powder can be used to set milk to make any type of cheese at home.  Available in 50g, 500g and 1kg.

Set milk to create cheeses of all types at home with organic all natural dry calf rennet powder in 50g packets. Different rennet amounts yield different types of cheeses by the firmness of the curds created. Rennet also aids in liquid separation into whey runoff. Follow the cheese making recipe for when to cut the curds because rennet will continue setting the milk until the conditions are no longer optimal.

Each packet of rennet:

  • GMO free
  • Gluten Free
  • 97% Chymosin enzyme
  • 3% Pepsin enzyme
  • Sets about 440 gallons (1666 liters of milk)
  • Organic certified

The powder is concentrated so only a small amount of rennet is needed to make a ‘normal curd.’ Use 1/16 tsp (1/3gram) sets 2 gallons (7.5L) of milk or 2-3 grams for every 100 liters. To make a firmer or softer curd, adjust the ratio as needed. Once the powder has been placed in water, it should be used immediately or within a half hour to maintain effectiveness.

Rennet is a necessary part of the cheese making process and the powdered version is a great choice for any cheese making but especially large quantities. Storage of powdered rennet should be kept dry between 38 to 45°F out of direct light. Purchase cheese kits and cheese making supplies along with the powder rennet for cheese to get the most out of your cheese making endeavors. 

Special Note from our rennet supplier: 'We extract the enzyme from calf, kid and lamb stomachs(rennet) in order to process liquid, paste, powder and powder tablet rennet for cheesemaking, in the standard technique since 1872 in France. We are aware of well-fair for animals and our commitment is to verify the killing procedures from our slaughterhouse suppliers. Please find attached our WalcoRen quality statement, the Ecocert Canada product evaluation for organic food.'

Directions: dissolve in a small amount of clean cool water, wait 5-10 minutes then pour across the milk surface, stirring for 3-4 gentle strokes. 

Rennet is used in cheese making to form curds from milk protein. Calf rennet is ideal for making longer aged cheeses because of it's ability to complete the breakdown of proteins.

    Best Rennet From The Best Seller

    Posted by Madra on 27th Apr 2020

    I have used this rennet for years and it has never failed me. it is clean. no artificial ingredients. I won't use anything else. Steve the Cheesemaker always has the best products and ingredients. I buy only from him. No one else takes care to make sure i get the product i bought and in a good time frame. He is the best! Even during the Covid19 virus he made sure I got my cheese ingredients quickly. without fail. The worst timing and still the best service!

    THEE Rennet

    Posted by Marty on 27th Sep 2017

    I've used this product many years and continue to do so because I trust in it. It may take a little longer for action, but with the situation of the "Organic market" and marketing, I know its a quality product made to higher standards. NOTE FROM THECHEESEMAKER: and the long shelf life makes this rennet very stable. For best results dissolve in a small amount of clean water and wait approximately 10 minutes prior to using.

    Walcoren powdered rennet is the best!

    Posted by Laura Cunningham on 1st Mar 2016

    I've been using the rennet tablets, but even frozen, they seem to lose their effectiveness quickly. A friend told me about the powdered rennet (purchased here), so when my last cheese took longer than normal, I ordered some. I make one cheese a week, and a failure is very disappointing. The new rennet was easy to use (and more accurate to measure) and I'm back to normal floculation times! Thank you!

    Cleanest and Strongest

    Posted by Terri on 16th Sep 2015

    I love this rennet. it has no bad additives to it. just pure rennet. it is strong as well and a small amount goes a long ways. I won't buy anything else. Truly grateful Steve sells it as no one else does that i know of.

    No Additives

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jun 2015

    i love this rennet. it has no propylene glycol in it. which is the main ingredient in car coolant. i don't understand why companies will sell ingredients that will toxify your cheese just like store bought. you try so hard to get away from it and the ingredients you buy are found to have the same toxins. Deliberate? probably. This rennet is a god send. it has nothing bad in it. a person really has to watch the labels. read the labels and spec sheets.Steve is so wonderful to provide those! that is one of the main reasons i buy from him.

    This powdered calf rennet is so easy to use, and keeps very well. I have had excellent results with it, and don't have to bother with breaking up a tablet.
