About This Product
ORGANIC MICROBIAL VEGETARIAN RENNET
Excellent for fresh and soft cheeses!
Whether you’re a cheesemaking aficionado or a once-in-a-blue-moon cheesemaking mad scientist, having all the right cheese ingredients on hand is very helpful. As avid at-home cheesemakers from Wisconsin, we at The CheeseMaker know what it is to be passionate about cheese. That’s why we’ve created an amazing list of ingredients to help you on your cheese making journey, including this vegetarian liquid rennet.
This Vegan friendly Organic Microbial Liquid Rennet is an excellent option for making vegetarian-friendly cheeses, especially, soft cheeses. The enzymes in this microbial rennet are derived from sodium chloride and Mucor miehei, a fungus that helps mitigate the fermentation and development of cheese from milk. As such, it is completely vegetarian (as opposed to traditional rennet that is extracted from animal enzymes) and helps make a delectable selection of fresh and creamy cheeses.
To use this double strength rennet, simply add 1.2 ml or a 1/4 teaspoon to 2 gallons (7.5mil) of milk. The active enzymes in the rennet will help curdle and solidify the milk, an important step in the cheesemaking process. Vegetarian rennet is best used for soft cheeses as it won’t give the same effect that’s needed to make hard cheeses such as parmesan or gorgonzola. The Organic Microbial Liquid Rennet is perfect for goat cheeses, camembert, and even softer cheddars or blue cheese varieties.
The Organic Microbial Liquid Rennet comes in several size options, each of which comes in a plastic squeeze bottle for easy, convenient use.
