Rennet, Homemade - From Fankhauser's Website
« on: November 27, 2008, 11:45:00 AM »
If you have access to goats, the Fankhauser site has good info and pictures on making real rennet from a kid's stomach. http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/cheese/Rennet/rennet_preparation.html 
Also quite a few good cheesemaking recipes.

Hi Mateo,

Leave it to dry completely. when you want to use dilute with acidic whey 24 hours before at room temp. Add salt on top.

As you don't know the concentration do a curdling test before use.

I'm curious about the pictures.  I've been making and using my own rennet (as discussed in the other thread), but I don't really know what I'm looking at in the picture, and I definitely wouldn't know how to get anything from a kid/calf to look like that.  Can you tell me more about the pictures?
