home made Mozz!
« on: March 01, 2012, 03:27:47 PM »
I ordered a kit for making fresh mozzarella cheese.
I was a bit skeptical but it turned out great for my first attempt.
I followed the directions to a T and it actually worked. Very good flavor, i have one dough ball left, so i will let you know how it is on pizza.

Nice lookin cheese! I have rennet, but just haven't pulled the trigger on home made mozz yet. Did you use special milk, if so how special?

for the first try, no. Just whole milk.
I did make a pizza and the cheese doesn't melt!. Was bummed. I was hoping someone who makes this stuff would chime in.
Did i get it too dry? I tried to remove as much liquid as possible, i have had wetter cheese that drowned my pizza before.
I will shred it and it will not go to waste and try again sometime.

moose13,

If you are interested Terry (tdeane) helped me make homemade mozzarella and I posted the pictures at Reply 205 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,7561.msg84735.html#msg84735  I used raw milk, vegetable rennet and citric acid.

One pizza I made with the fresh mozzarella (Terry helped me with) and then I froze the mozzarella I posted about at Reply 112 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9946.msg88104.html#msg88104

The second time I made fresh mozzarella I used the second link I posted in for 30 minute mozzarella at Reply1 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,10180.msg89139.html#msg89139

I have been thinking about trying to make fresh mozzarella again.

Chau has a great video about him making fresh mozzarella from curd at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,14423.0.html and how to wrap fresh mozzarella at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,13468.0.html

I tried some different techniques and got a better result.
The flavor is good, and actually melts. Not really better than store bought, but fun to try.
