Hi Corina! We are referring to powder so one teaspoon works great!


Is the citric acid liquid or powder? If I have powder, would I use 1 tspn?

Jessica at Cheese Grotto

Hi Cheryl! Ideally it would be pasteurized or raw milk and not ultra-pasteurized. UP milk has less calcium chloride in it due to the high heat treatment during pasteurization. Calcium chloride is a binding agent for cheesemaking, so sometimes UP milk yield little to no curd.


Does it matter if the milk is ultra pasteurized for this? I made it with UP milk & it was good but wanted to make sure…
Great recipes on here!
