rennet substitution advice please
« on: August 08, 2017, 01:08:51 PM »
I am visiting at my mom's house, and she has made arrangements for some fresh goat milk for me while I'm here.  We planned for this, and I brought supplies and equipment for making a couple of cheeses.  lol, I even brought my smallest wine cooler so we'd have a cave.  But I forgot the rennet.  My mom has a few mad millie rennet tablets in the freezer.  Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to use them for a semi-lactic cheese that would only use a drop or two of liquid rennet?  I assume that I would dissolve it in water and then use that, but I have no clue as to the tablet:water ratio, and then how much of that to use for a gallon of goat milk.  Any thoughts, or suggestions?
