8 months agoGreat kit for the beginnerJust what needed to begin making cheese. Made several pounds of mozzarella and cheddar. Only issue was the thermometer was broken (delivery people are tough on packages where I live).
Thanks.October 30, 2018Purchased

1 year agogood so farStatus: we have made the cheddar and it is aging, so don't know how it tastes. Packaging: sorting is required. Some reagents need freezing and some refrigeration and they were divided (appropriately I suppose) between the two kits although the finer mesh butter muslin was in the hard cheese kit which seemed strange to me. Process: fairly time consuming, especially the first time. However, it seemed that it was no more time-consuming than wine-making, but done over a shorter period of time. Experience will shorten some of the time needed. Cost:taste ratio.. unknown.January 9, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoStarter Kit informationThe indication is that all I need is MILK. However it does not advise that I have to get goat milk for one cheese and then a special milk for another cheese. Not happy at all.November 24, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoCreamery in A BoxEverything you need for the beginning cheese maker. Tools and supplies to make several cheeses. All you need is a good stainless steel pot (s) and a quality milk product. Directions are straight forward or you can catch some You Tube videos for extra ideas.November 24, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoFarmhouse CheddarThe kit is complete with everything you need. I did find the instructions need a little work. Not as clear for a first time cheese maker. Midwest should create a video. You can find many on you tube however.
Haven't tasted it yet as I have a couple more weeks to let it age.November 24, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoLots of funSo far have made 5 batches. Everything has turned out well. Mozzarella is good and the cheddar needs to age for a few weeks.November 24, 2016Purchased

Browse 8 questions Browse 8 questions and 12 answersSteps 5 & 6 don't make sense. The 45 angle throws me off. Wouldn't you just be cutting the cubes from step 5 into triangles?Is there anything not included in the essential starter kit such as necessary steel pots or a more complete kit?BEST ANSWER: All you will need is some milk of your choice and a pot to boil it in. I used 2% milk and the resulting cheese was fantastic. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. We were more than happy with the results. - Fred in WisconsinWhy is there no answer to "How much cheese does it make?"BEST ANSWER: It makes 5 - roughly one pound batches of cheesehow much cheese does it make?Can you use Almond Milk to make the cheese?BEST ANSWER: This kit is mainly for making cheese from Cows milk or Goat milk or combo of these. Almond milk cheese does not use Rennet or cultures in the process usually lemon juice, lime juice or white or apple cider vinegar at high temperature like making Ricotta, and can be quite a finicky process. Preform a Google search on Almond Milk Cheese and check out the ideas. Cheers.What size is the mold?BEST ANSWER: Cheese mould with this kit is 5.1 inch tall and 4.73 inch in diameter, open bottom with drilled holes in the cylinder. Follower is included and has a top made to hold a 2.5# can on it so you can add the weight you need. Or you might consider the Whey Station Press if you do not have one, easier in the long run. Hopes this helps.Is there a shelf life on the creamery in a box starter kits?BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting Northern Brewer. Yes, there would be a shelf life to our Creamery in a box kits as several of the items do need to be refrigerated.The rennet has a shelf life around 6 months and the starter cultures can be kept in the freezer for up to two years.Does the essential cheese making starter kit include instructions for soft cheeses or is that a separate boxBEST ANSWER: There is a link to the instructions in the Product Downloads section. For soft cheeses, you would skip the steps that are marked "Hard Cheeses Only".
