Overnight acidification
« on: September 28, 2009, 08:22:09 PM »
I got a late start on my mozz today. Can I wait to stretch it until the morning? Should I refrigerate it to leave it at room temp?

Thanks!

Yes as long as you have it in a sort of solid form. Get it to the point of stretching - drain it in cheese cloth then wrap it plastic wrap or a sealed container. Don't leave it in the whey.

Do I need to warm it slowly at room temp for a few hours?

Not really just remember it will not get hot instantly. The middle will take awhile.
