Sorry I don't have goats but just remember with goats milk you use a lot less rennet than with cows milk. there is an excellent cheese making forum which has heaps of recipes and the mebers are very helpful www.cheeseforum.org good luck and have fun

Ooo I have cheese cultures here to make soft cheeses with my goats milk... ... . I like the blanc fromage one best, apparently its more suited to cows milk, but its pretty addictive when made from goats milk here! Doesnt last longer than a day or 2 =P

Where abouts are you in Hamilton? We are in Matangi and we milk two does, and we also make cheese with the surplus milk. Its great :)

we are in Te Pahu and would love to pick your brains - what kind of cheese do you make?
I have been resonalbe successful with making icecream, but the yoghurt and cheese has been a disaster!

I make goat milk yogurt in my easiyo yogurt maker. Buy the goats milk drinking yogurt from the supermarket to use as a starter. Then when your yogurt is made you take some of that to use as starter for next batch. Just warm the fresh goats milk(google the appropriate temp)add the yogurt mix and biff them in the yogurt litre jug. Add the hot water round the outside and stick the litre jug in put lid on and walaa yogurt. I remember my parents used to make yogurt from our nanny when I was a kid(couldn't have dairy, still can't really)and used to make the yogurt and wrap it up and put in airing cupboard.
