Gouda Cheesemaking Kit
Make Gouda cheese at home with this cheesemaking kit.
The kits include all the specialty ingredients and equipment needed to make 8 batches of Gouda cheese and a copy of Naomi's Gouda recipe that's been tested with raw and pasteurized milk.
The Basic kit does not include a cheese mould and contains enough cultures and rennet to make eight 4-litre/quart batches of cheese.
The Standard kit includes a small or medium cheese mould and a cheese mat for drying your cheese after brining. Make eight 4-litre/quart batches of cheese with the small mould and eight 8-litre/quart batches with the medium mould.
Please note that Gouda is a semi-hard cheese and requires a cheese press. You can build a simple cheese press at home for under $20. Get my free how-guide guide at https://naomisbirdsongfarm.aweb.page/cheesepress.

✅ A bottle of calcium chloride.

If you select a cheese mould, you will also receive a sturdy food-grade polypropylene cheese mould and follower, as well as a coarse mesh mat for air-drying your cheese before waxing or vacuum sealing it. The small size is perfect for making batches of cheese using 4 litres/quarts of milk, while the medium mould is best for 8 litres/quarts of milk. This mould should last you a lifetime and can be used for making wheels of Gouda, Cheddar, or any hard or semi-hard, pressed cheese.
