About This Product
Cheesemaking is a precise art that at times calls for experimentation (how do you think someone came up with blue cheese?) and at other times calls for the precise use of specific cheese making supplies. One such specific ingredient is rennet, an enzyme that helps to solidify milk in order to create delicious, mouth-watering cheeses. Available in either a liquid or tablet form, getting the right rennet for your cheese recipe is an important part of the cheesemaking process. The Walcoren rennet tablets are excellent for all types of cheese.
NEW PACKAGING Includes one bottle of 80 tablets: Excellent rennet for all types of cheeses. This rennet can be used to set milk to make any type of cheese. Each tablet will set 4 liters (1 gallon) of milk. Usually a lactic starter culture is ussed or some form of acid to acidify the milk prior to adding the rennet. The rennet can be added to the milk approximately an hour after adding a starter culture at 86-90f. Some milks, especially some raw milk may already have lactic bacteria in the milk and thus the rennet can sometimes be added to the milk without first adding a lactic bacteria starter culture. 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. Contains 97% Chymosin & 3% Pepsin(enzymes), and salt. Organic and GMO Free.
The Walcoren-Dry Calf Rennet Tablets come in a bottle of 80 tablets. Whether you’re craving a Camembert or a strong aged cheddar, these rennet tables are must-haves when it comes to choosing your cheese ingredients. To use these rennet tablets, dissolve a little at a time in pure, cool water. Let the tablets dissolve for about 5 to 10 minutes before pouring the mixture over the milk surface. Give it a few gentles stirs (3 or 4 will do just fine) and let the cheesemaking continue.
