DetailsLet the cheese crafting begin! This revolutionary Creamery in a Box® Fresh Mozzarella Recipe Kit includes all the ingredients you need to whip up five 1-pound batches of heirloom-quality Mozzarella in your own kitchen. Knead it into a ball, or make bite-sized morsels…just be sure to make plenty because this cheese tends to disappear quickly!
NOTE: This recipe requires milk that is NOT Ultra-Pasteurized. Beware, many organic milks are still
ultra-pasteurized; looking for locally-sourced milk is your best bet, but any pasteurized milk should work.

This recipe kit gives you just enough of each ingredient to make 5 pounds of fresh cheese. Never run out unexpectedly, and never use old out-of-date ingredients for your cheese.
Have fun while you learn exactly how to use each tool and ingredient as well as key techniques for mastering the art of artisan cheesemaking.

3.0 / 5.02 ReviewsBad experience with mozzarella kitNot my first rodeo with cheese making. Followed directions explicitly yet after stretching mozzarella, placing into an ice cold salt bath for 5 minutes the cheese collapsed into a mess. I contacted Midwest and rather than offering a rebate or new kit blamed the milk (it was fresh and pasteurized). I gave a mozzarella kit to a friend, he ended up with ricotta. BAD FORM!!!January 7, 2017Purchased
6 months agoResponse from Midwest SuppliesWe are sorry for the bad cheese experience. We want all of our products to deliver a 5-star experience and this one did not deliver for you. Our Customer Service team is happy to help troubleshoot this further as there are a few issues that all cheese makers will likely experience in their journey. Based on the info here, it could have been some ultra-pasteurized milk or something with the Citric Acid addition. In the meantime, we did get a refund for the kit processed. Please let us know if you are interested in giving this another chance or would like to talk about things that could have affected this batch.February 8, 2017Todd JStaff

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerHow do you monitor the temperature while you are making the cheese? Can I put a meat thermometer into the mixture? Does that make the mixture unsterile? Thanks!BEST ANSWER: Any accurate kitchen thermometer could be used, you would want it to be very clean when you use it, of course. We advise sanitizing all equipment that will be contacting the cheese mixture before getting started.
