DIY Cheese Kit | Goat Cheese


by Urban Cheesecraft

Make simple goat cheese with an Urban Cheesecraft Kit! It only takes one hour, really. Easily make a delicious mild goat cheese similar to Ricotta. Try three more variations on that recipe for fun!

This carefully assembled kit includes a re-usable thermometer and 2 super cute, authentic goat cheese molds.

Your DIY Fresh Goat Cheese Kit Includes:

Instruction Booklet and Unlimited Email Support
2 Small French Cheese Molds
Fine Mesh Cotton Cheesecloth (also called butter muslin)
Glass Dairy Thermometer (alcohol not mercury)
Non-GMO Citric Acid
Iodine-Free, Pure Cheese Salt

Just add 2 quarts of goat milk and in one hour you will be eating and sharing your very own fancy goat cheese!

Each kit makes 8 batches of cheese (about 6-8 oz per batch, 2 small wheels) so you have plenty of supplies to experiment with different herbs, shapes and recipes. Use the included molds to shape your cheese or hand roll small logs in herbs and enjoy!

NOTE: This kit makes an easy, beginners' goat cheese similar to ricotta or other farmer cheeses. It is light and mild. Perfect for an appetizer or after dinner treat with some fruit! Chevre means goat in French so it covers an endless variety of cheeses made of goat milk. The results with this kit will NOT be like the pungent aged French cheeses you may have encountered. Those take a bit more experience, more aging time, rennet and cultures. My kits focus on simple success for newbies! I may offer more advanced kits in the future but for now, this is a great start. This Chevre is very versatile and great for beginners! Note that a couple of the variations call for cow's milk products but the base recipe works great with good quality goat's milk (NOT ultra-pasteurized).

FOOD SAFETY AND HANDLING: Please note that my kits and their supplies are hand-poured, hand-folded and assembled in a food-safe, fully-licensed space. The food items are all gluten-free but packaged in a room that comes in contact with wheat, soy, corn, nuts and other food allergens (with serious cleanings in between of course). The kits are also vegetarian-friendly. Just so you know. Ok! That's all I can think of. Dive in!
