This is a coagulant made from a selected strain of the fungus Rhizomucor miehei. It is widely used in the commercial cheese making industry to coagulate the milk for cheese and junket making. It contains no animal tissue and is therefore particularly good if you would like to make vegetarian cheeses. This rennet is G.E Free.
Rennet is an enzyme used for making the vast majority of cheeses, particularly many of the classic harder cheeses, as it speeds up the coagulation process to former a tighter and stronger curd. As a general rule, liquid rennet is used sparingly, from between 0.2 ml to 0.5ml per litre of milk and the rennet should also be diluted in around 5 times its amount in boiled then cooled water, before it is added to milk. Rennet must be stored in your fridge and always check with each Mad Millie recipe for exact usage volumes. Mad Millie also stocks tablet rennet which is shelf stable and has a longer shelf life.
Strength = 240 IMCU/mL
Use between 0.2 and 0.5 ml per litre of milk. Dilute product in un-chlorinated water before adding to milk.
Store in the refrigerator.
About Mad Millie
Mad Millie is a young Kiwi company with a passion and love for all things delicious and handcrafted. We also love to share our passion with you by giving you the opportunity to do this yourself at home.
We're famous for our cheese making kits which allow you to make an array of gourmet cheeses such as feta, cheddar, halloumi, mozzarella, Camembert and more, as well as including making butter! Homemade cheese is something we want to prove can be done in your kitchen with your own hands! Plus they make fantastic gifts too.
We don't stop there though. What better way to accompany your gourmet cheese than with homemade sausages, cider, beer, yoghurt and more. Our Fresh Sausage Kit is packed with homemade sausage making recipes, our Boutique Brewery Kits allow you to make refreshing cider or beer to help quench your thirst and we look after you too with kits such as Greek Yoghurt and Kefir that are full of healthy benefits!
The beauty of making things yourself is that you know exactly what goes in it, you can avoid nasty additives and you can make it just how you like it! Don't just take our word for it though we've had others tell us how much they enjoy our kits too.
We've made it easy, quick and provided you with anything specialised, so why don't you give it a try!
