The kit comprises the following items:

1 x 25ml bottle of industrial strength vegetarian rennet, that should be added at a rate of 4 drops per gallon (4.5 litres) of milk to produce an excellent soft cheese. It may also be pre-diluted with a little cold boiled water (say a teaspoonful) to assist when dosing smaller quantities of milk - or simply stir vigorously whilst adding.

Please note that this kit is also available with animal rennet (elsewhere on our site) and the shelf life of both types of rennet is a full 6 months when stored in a normal fridge.

1 x general purpose cheese culture. These cultures are designed to 'ripen' the milk and acidify it, so that the rennet can do its work, turning the milk into curds and whey. To prolong the life of the culture, please store in the freezer. The culture is made up into a litre of solution and this solution is able to be deep frozen, so that it can be repeatedly used for dozens of batches! An instruction sheet is included.

1 x cheesecloth, measuring 24 inches (600mm) square for hanging up the curds and allowing the whey to fully drain. This cheesecloth has all 4 edges oversewn with overlocked stitching to ensure that it can be washed again and again without any fraying.

1 x Pan clip thermometer.

1 x 250g cheese salt

1 x recipe booklet
