I received this product quickly and in good condition. As it was a gift, I can't really review it. Will let you know if I get to taste the finished product.


was disappointed...

Thought I was purchasing a complete kit to make cheese. These are only items you can purchase locally.

I am having difficulty obtaining one essential ingredient - raw goat milk. If it turns out it's impossible to get raw goat milk, than the kit is useless!


Not Worth The Trouble!

I bought this kit as a gift for my cheese loving granddaughter, who is a college freshman. On one of her weekends home she decides to make the cheese, with the help of her mom.
Both sadly reported to me: it was too much work for " cheese that didn't taste like goat cheese." In addition to the fact, they had to find goat's milk to begin the process!

I really wanted to try this. We are big cheese lovers and thought it would be fun to try our hand at making our own. I wish now I had picked one of the other kits. I have tried every grocery store and specialty market in my area looking for goats milk. According to the package you can't use ultra pasteurized milk, it must be raw or pasteurized only and the stores only carry ultra pasteurized so I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to actually make the cheese.

The Urban Cheesecraft Story

Urban Cheesecraft - DIY Cheese Kits

Cheese Making 101

When Claudia Lucero set out to try her hand at cheesemaking, she was surprised at how difficult it was to find supplies and overwhelmed by some of the special equipment that some recipes required. After all, cheesemaking has been going on for centuries. Should it really be this complicated to try in a modern home? None of us has calibrated presses, humidity gauges, and acidity testers in our home kitchens.

After lots of research and perseverance, Claudia refined her own techniques for making fresh cheeses that don’t require aging and can be made at home with little or no special equipment. Now
she’s sharing her experience with fellow aspiring cheesemakers.

With an Urban Cheesecraft DIY Cheese Kit, all you need is a gallon of pasteurized milk (not ultra-pasteurized). The kits include the rest of the supplies such as cheesecloth, a dairy thermometer, vegetarian rennet, citric acid, and cheese salt. (Supplies vary depending on the kit you choose.) Just follow the instructions, and in about an hour, you’ll have fresh mozzarella, ricotta, queso blanco, paneer, or goat cheese. Once you get the hang of it, you can have fun experimenting with different spices, shapes, and recipes. Your taste buds will love the effort.
