Hi clherestian, yep, I used 2 US gallons of standard store bought past & homogenized whole milk, get higher yield from whole vs 1%. Also I make mine a little soft, higher moisture content.
Good question on weight, so I just removed from brine, let stand 15 min to drain, weighed at 1.65 kg - 0.2 kg colander = 1.45 kg or 3.2 lb of Feta. Crappy scale so probably not highly accurate.
While out of brine, I checked the texture, not soft, small not highly crumbly, pictures below describes it better. Taste very nice, bit too salty as expected from ~14% brine.
I saw your picture of Feta
, what was your yield and did you use whole past or raw milk and is yours denser?
