Complete newbie here to cheese making.

Made my first acid based ricotta the other day, so popped my cherry.... lol

I have some NEUTRAL PROTEASE A, I use it when I make my whisky mash washes (another hobby :) )

I've attached a data sheet.


 A is a proteinase, hydrolysing peptide bonds with preference for leucine and phenylalanine residues ( E.C No NEUTRAL PROTEASE A is produced by the controlled fermentation of Bacillus subtillis............

............PROTEASE A can also be used in the Baking Industry and in the production of protein hydrolysates.

So while enjoying the fruits of my other hobby, I decided to try and add some to some milk to see what would happen....

a few small drops and three seconds later the entire pot was curdled...

Can this actually be turned into a hard cheese now? or can it be used for somthing else?

Sorry if I've missed something or put this in the wrong category.

I have no idea about the protease and whether it can be used in cheesemaking, but there is one thing I can say ...
