I forgot to ask my other question!

When making Mozz, can you use the leftover whey to make ricotta? I thought I saw something online that showed a person making ricotta after making another cheese.

What kind of water did you use? Chlorinated tap water is bad for the rennet. You might want to try some bottled water.

Boiling the tap water first is good enough.

My water is fine. Of course a bit of bottled water is not going to break the bank either.

Will this process work with the 30 minute mozzarella, which uses citric acid instead of a culture?

Going to do this tonight possibly if I can find the citric acid, rennet, and cheese salt locally. What kind of stores carry these items?

Other questions, how critical is water volume when dissolving? Is it important to have a certain amount of water in the mix, or just enough to get it dissolved?

F my LHBS. Closest is 1 hour away and Rapes your wallet. Plus the Lady who works there (her husband owns it) is the type that makes you feel like you're inconveniencing her to get off her chair from behind her book to sell you something.
How about GNC type place or grocery store have any of this? WalMart?
