Rated 5 out of 5 by JBLex from Great customer service I ordered this item last year, had some questions about it and reached out to the folks at Urban Cheesecraft. I found them knowledgeable and responsive. They are invested in your success! Good luck, JBDate published: 2015-01-12Rated 1 out of 5 by CarolPV from Didn't work for me I was very disappointed in this kit! I bought it for us as a Christmas present, as something fun to do. We followed the instructions exactly and the goat milk never coagulated. I lost track of time but we probably kept the milk at the correct temperature for 20 minutes. At $9 for the goat milk I probably won't try it again. I should have looked at more reviews before I bought this.Date published: 2014-02-10Rated 5 out of 5 by iwanttobeafarmer from Fun experiment I just tried my DIY Goat/Chevre Cheese-Making Kit and was pleasantly surprised! I was a little concerned at first because I heated the fresh, raw goat's milk to the specified temperature and did not see any coagulation. I decided to cook it just another minute longer (still not allowing it to boil) and let it sit for the specified time. Upon pouring it into the cheesecloth- lined colander I had cheese! Thanks!!Date published: 2013-12-29Rated 5 out of 5 by MoniquesKitchen from Delicious cheese and great kit! I have used this kit to make all kinds of chevre, copying flavors I find at my local cheese shop (very expensive chevre!). All have been delicious and so easy to make. The instructions clearly tell you that ultra-pasteurized milk won't work so maybe some of you have bad milk? I found mine at Trader Joes. I also tried the recipe with regular cow's milk and it worked great! I am delighted with this adorable kit and I will be buying many more this holiday season... but first, I will try the feta kit for myself!Date published: 2013-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by LUPIS from ABSOLUTELY AMAZING Two things: I'm neither experienced with high quality cheeses, nor a person who likes to ask for help, so this cheese kit was like the perfect thing to have. There's not much to add here...this is plain and simply a perfect cheese kit, easy to make and if you get creative by adding any of your favorite herbs the results are amazing. Can I just say...absolutely delicious?! I loooove this cheeeese!Date published: 2013-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Wcolleen from Creamy Chevre! I love that I can make cheese! I had to search a bit for goats milk that was not ultra pasteurized but once I did I was able to make beautiful little wheels of goat cheese. My friends are in awe!Date published: 2013-08-14Rated 5 out of 5 by LBYork from Easy and Delicious This kit made the making of goat cheese simple. Worked the very first time but found making a double batch works better than the single batch. Used Ultra Pasteurized goat milk and doesn't have quite the same tang typical of goat cheese and this is probably due to the pasteurization process. Next batch will be with raw goat's milk if I can find some.Date published: 2013-07-17Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommiesbaby from Disappointment I was excited to give this to my husband as a gift, but after we spent $10.00 on goat's milk and did not get the coagulation after one hour we continued to cook (not boil) for a couple more hours. $10.00 gone, no cheese. What a disappointment and waste of time. Another reviewer said she had a 50/50 success rate, but who wants to spend that much money on goat's milk for a 50% chance of getting cheese?Date published: 2013-06-30
