    Performs very good

    I've made a fresh cheese and started a cheddar. They used different amounts of rennet, and both performed excellent. The curds formed perfectly and tasted fantastic!

    Veal Calf Liquid Rennet

    Posted by Sam Celia on 20th Sep 2018

    In cheese making, I frequently experiment with a variety of rennet, and rennet substitutes. This is a good product, and I would have rated it much higher, if I was able to get a clean break a little sooner. It took nearly two hours. To be fair, I used it with previously frozen milk, so there were some temperature abuse issues! That's on me! I intend to continue using this product though. It came through for me, though a little slowly. Note from Steve/thecheesemaker: Our veal rennet is a five star product, excellent for cheeses that are long aged. Milk should never be frozen as it disrupts the structure of the milk, and a lactic culture or other acid producer which will drop the pH and allow the milk to set 40 minutes after adding the rennet. Temps below 85F also make it difficult to get a satisfactory gel which cuts into smooth curds.

    the best i've tried

    Posted by Barbara on 18th Apr 2018

    I have tried other types of rennet and this is the kind that works best for me. The only way it could be better is if it said on the label that it was from Animal Welfare Association approved veal calves. (I don't have a problem with animals dying but I do hate to think of them suffering before they die!). Note from Steve/thecheesemaker: Veal rennet is not made by killing or hurting any animals. This form of rennet is produce using an enzyme from the calf. Hundreds of years ago, before safe and modern cheese making, the calf was used each time to extract the natural coagulant. Modern cheese making uses only the enzyme to produce the rennet so that animals are never used.

    The rennet I purchased was a premium ingredient to my Finnish Squeaky Cheese I made for St. Urho's Day. It was a look good.
