Its pretty easy! the recipe I used called for 1 gallon of milk. Heat to 77 degrees, (mine got to 80), add 1/4 tsp of mesophilic culture sprinkled of the top. Let set for 5 min and then gently draw the culter down in the milk with an up and down motion. The recipe said to do that with a skimmer, but I used a metal slotted spoon. Then delute 1 drop of liquid rennet into 1 tbs of water. Add to milk and again gently draw down into the milk with up and down motions. cover and let sit for 24 hours. Ladle curd into cheese cloth and hang for 6 to 7 hours and then add 1% of its weight in cheese salt (I used canning salt). Then flavor as you desire! It was super easy and not at all time consuming. This is going to be a staple in my home I am thinking! Hubby is a total cheese fanatic!
