Best gadget or trick for home pasteurization
« on: January 14, 2014, 11:49:27 AM »
I have seen different kitchen equipment used to home pasteurize small amounts of raw milk (1-2 gallons) at home.

Anybody have a clever idea?

Thanks!

Just heat it in a pot. To be "official" either 145F for 30 minutes or 161F for 15 seconds.

Sometimes the simple solutions are also the most "clever". :)

Glengarry sells an 8L home pasteurizer for 425 $. Pretty expensive and limited for what it does. As Sailor suggests, heating in the pot or in your cheese vat is the best option.

Thanks. Yes, that's what I have been doing but was looking for something in which I can keep the milk at a constant temp without having to fuss with the range.
