LL, Sorry for not posting this sooner...I guess it fell off my radar somewhere!

The recipe John linked to is pretty close to what mine was.  I had a 2 gallon batch vs. 1 gallon.  Thus I used double the cultures (1/2 tsp each) I ripened for a little longer and only used 1/4 tsp of the milk Lipase.  I think the key to this one is a good set curd and then using the whisk to cut it down to very small pieces.   Good luck and let us know how it goes.

a third option would be to rub the cheese with olive oil just to keep it from drying out.
