I have not tried Sainte Maure, but I did try to make Chevre.  I used the powdered goats milk and mixed it with cows milk.  (1qt powder to 1 gal milk) I was reasonably happy with the results. 

It was not as good as real milk, but better than adding lipase to cows milk.

The powder will mix better when the milk is warm.

Good luck!

I wouldn't. It's totally dead milk and its origins are not quality milk to begin with. Why would you want to do that?

Iratherfly, I was asking this for a friend of mine  who has trouble finding fresh goat milk in her area, that's why. I also sense that powdered milk only would be "dead". Thank you for your input.  :-)
