Thanks to this forum, I learned mozzarella and fior di latte are not the same. Has anyone tried making fior di latte, which as I understand it is unstretched?

I attempted the pasta filata recipe here:

Its basically using a culture from buttermilk to acidify the curds, no citric acid. I achieved a clean break and let the broken curds rest in the whey overnight in a warm place. Trying to melt them though, failed again. Used 185F water to melt, but they just won't come together.. Anybody have success with this technique, ideas?
