cheeky Monkey cream chargers cheese making kit review

Creamchargers recently sent me a goat’s cheese making kit to test out. I’ve never been the biggest fan of goat’s cheese but considering it’s been a long time since I’ve actually tried any, I thought it was still worth giving it a go!

The cheese making kit contains citric acid, cheese salt, herbs de provence and a cheesecloth.

First of all you mix 1 1/2 tsp citric acid with 125ml warm water. Stir until there is no more grittiness.

Then stir in the goat’s milk and gently heat to 85C, stirring often so the bottom of the pan doesn’t catch.

Leave the milk to cool for 10-15 minutes, then pour through a colander which you’ve lined with the cheesecloth. Leave for up to one hour and allow the whey to drain off. Which will look just like this:

Your cheese should now be ready! All you need to do now is gently massage in the cheese salt (which feels and sounds a bit weird but essential if you aren’t eating your cheese straight away.)

Roll the cheese into a log and sprinkle over the herbs. I used a mixture of herbs and cracked peppercorns.

Voilà – home made goat’s cheese in just over one hour! I really enjoyed using this kit and the cheese was so creamy and fresh tasting. Goat’s cheese will never be a favourite of mine but I have to admit that served with a lemon vinegarette beetroot salad it really was pretty good!

My verdict? I was pretty impressed with it! I was expecting it to be a fiddly process but it was easy and straightforward. I’m very keen to try the mozzarella kit next. The cheese making kits are available to order right here.
