Okay. So last night I made another batch. This time I heated the milk slowly and I didn't shake it up beforehand. No more rubbery texture! However, still a little goaty flavor. Will goat mozarella always have a little goat flavor? You know, like a REALLY mild chevre. We are milking Brownie only right now and she has only been with us for about three weeks. We have never had issues with goat milk smelling goaty. Brownie's milk doesn't smell goaty, but the cheese and yogurt I make with it does. I never had goaty smelling yogurt last year with Sweet Pea's milk. We feed alfalfa pellets, free choice minerals, and baking soda. And, they get goat chow when they are on the milk stand. I just started letting them graze a little. Would that cause a stronger goaty taste?
