[quote=“TheLostSwede”]Just wondering if anyone has tried making cheese here?
I’m not really after making my own cheese, but I would like to get my hands on some whey if anyone is making their own cheese.
I know it’s a strange request, but I want to try to make something from back home out of it and that’s why I’m after whey rather than rennet or the other kind of stuff you need for cheese making.
I’m thinking about placing an order for some rennet and other cultures and cheesemaking stuff, but you don’t need any of that to get whey; you can just use some vinegar or lemon juice to curdle some milk at the right temperature, strain the curds out, and you have whey (instructions are all over the internet – just look for homemade cottage cheese recipes). You can just toss the curds if you want and keep the whey.
Anyway, I plan to use my whey to make ricotta, but if I really get into this instead of just trying it once or twice (as often happens with my hobbies ), then I might have some spare whey at some point. If I do I’ll let you know, if you’re still interested and if you can travel to Donghu, Taibei. Drop me your contact info in a PM.
