Ingredients | Homemade Goat Cheese

  • 1 gallon of milk – personally, I use raw goats milk from my farm
  • Liquid rennet – 3 drops dissolved in 1/4 cup of cool water
  • 1/8tsp Chevre culture

Step 1

Heat the Milk | Homemade Goat Cheese

Heat your milk to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not over heat!

Step 2

Sprinkle your dried culture on top of the milk. Allow it to sit for a couple of minutes and then stir thoroughly.

Step 3

Add diluted rennet | Homemade Goat Cheese

Take 2 tbsp of your prepared diluted rennet and add it to the milk. Stir well.

Now leave the milk to sit somewhere for 8-12 hours. I usually do this step before I go to bed and let it sit overnight. You can leave the pot on the countertop with a dish towel over it, and then drain the curds in the morning.

Step 4

Drain the Curd | Homemade Goat Cheese

You will find, after 8-12 hours, that the curds have set and are ready to be drained.

Scoop the Curd | Homemade Goat Cheese

With a slotted spoon, carefully scoop the curds out into a colander lined with cheesecloth.

Step 5

Take the corners of the cheesecloth, and hang the cheese in a bundle somewhere it can drain for the rest of the day. If your house is warm, hang it in the fridge to drain. It may take longer to drain when it is chilled.
