We picked up more milk and used 1/2 a tablet. After adding the citrus acid blend, we heated it all up to 110 and then added the rennit. Came out just fine.

Someone tell Ricki that the 1/4 tablet isn't working. It can't come from me because I am a competitor. This is why we have our own kit.

I actually just finished a bite of herb de provence cheddar that I made at the beginning of October and it's fantastic.

I also started with a Ricki Hard Cheese Kit and later bought her book. It's also where I lost respect for her company.

The recipies that came in the hard cheese pamphlet weren't working for me. When I cross referenced them in the book... they were different recipies. I emailed and was told that although they were different, they both would work. I emailed back simply stating that one worked for me and one didn't and why the inconsistency from recipies coming from the same source?

Never got a reply. Will not order supplies there again.

Hey guys, I haven't made cheese or anything yet. I saw it was attached to the HBT forums so I thought I'd step in and check things out. Has anyone tried the Austin Homebrew Supply kit? I'm interested in seeing if this one is any better.

Yes, over 750 people have tried the Austin Homebrew Supply Mozzarella cheese kit. It is a killer deal.... Just sayin'

Would I need to buy the hard cheese kit to make cheddar? Also, is there anything else you need to buy to make it?

Hard cheeses are harder to make. No pun intended. You need a cheese press and months of time.

The hard cheese kit includes cheddar. I would master the soft cheeses first.

Default Mozarella - Try Calcium Chloride

Because Pasteurization removes calcium, you may need to add a small amount of calcium chloride to aid coagulation and form curd.

About 3/4 crystals to 5 gal of milk. Dissolve the Calcium Chloride first in 1/4 cup H2O before adding to milk.

Also, unless you make ricotta from whey that comes from left from cheese that had a cultured starter (mesophlic bacteria, etc.) you won't get ricotta.

Forrest, my daughter and I just whipped up a batch of the Mozzarella cheese from AHS and in a word, it's gooooooooooooooooood. Thanks!

Edit: We followed the instructions from the YouTube video on the AHS site instead of the instructions that came with the kit.
