Hey, just looking for a little inspiration for my recent foray into cheesemaking. I'm having difficulty finding goat's milk that is not ultra-pasteurized. Does anybody have a "go to" source for it? (Specialty food chain, ethnic grocer, etc). Thanks if you can help!

My wife got some a Trader Joe's yesterday. She's going to attempt goat's cheese tomorrow.

Actually, yes it is. I just checked. Is that going to give her issues?

Supposedly it degrades the proteins that rennet (or acid) coagulates to make the cheese. But I will be interested to hear if it works for her. I have found the ultra-pasteurized stuff in some ethnic markets around here.

Look up local farm share co-ops. Realmilk.com has some.

Thanks. Yeah, I don't have a car and I live in a major metropolitan area which makes things difficult. Sigh. I'll figure this out!
