that's an asshole type answer. . . .

back to the OP,
use what ever you can find that will work. If the milk works for 1 cheese it will work for the rest. I prefer Oberwiess (~$6) here in Milwaukee but have heard store brand Roundys (~$3) works as well. Unfortunately I dont know what markets or brands you have in your area.

Best bet is to get a gallon and make a test batch of mozzarella and if it works out fine for that, then use it for cheddar.

So is that, and quite unnecessary.


The OP hadn't received an answer for over a week and I gave him the most pertinent lead I could find. I hope the OP found it helpful.

That is a great thread. I didn't know about the ultra pastuerized crap being a flop for cheese. I want to experiment with cheese and be versed before using goats milk. I cant believe even organic milk is ultra pasteurized. That kind of Sucks rooster balls.
