Cheesemaking 101: How to Make Feta Cheese (with Cow's Milk)

  • Hi Ibrahim! Sometimes the rennet can be finicky. Rennet needs to be diluted in cold, non-chlorinated water in order to maintain its potency when added to milk. You want to see that the curd pulls away from the sides and when you gently press the curd it bounces under your finger. If the curd is not fully formed before you start cutting it, then you will never get a full separation of curds and whey. Occasionally, you have to wait longer for the curd separation to happen before cutting due to rennet strength or the freshness or acidity of the milk.
