Not worth the money at all
The products in the box are overhyped and cheap. The curd knife came with a missing rivet, the spoon is covered in glue from the uneccesary SKU sticker, the dropper of rennet, annato and CaCl are not enough for 5lbs as advertised but barely enough for 3. I could get 2oz of liquid rennet for $7 elsewhere. There is an over abundance of cheese salt. The money put into that could have allowed for more rennet. And to top it all off the plastic cheese press is perhaps the most pathetic piece of equipment I have ever used. It bends, warps, barely fits a soup can as the suggested instructions indicate, and if you think you’re going to balance 50lbs of textbooks and weights on that tiny plastic P.O.S. you’re going to have a huge mess on your hands. Two squares of playwood and four bolts later I am finally able to make the cheddar without wanting to punch a wall. If you are looking to make some cheese, don’t do it this way. The mold is a joke and the tools are pathetic.

diredtions not clear
The directions were not clear on the addition of the ingredients for the farmhouse cheddar, very hard to understand either one of the directions for both cheeses. Not to thrilled with the product.
Love the beer kits from northern brewer but not the cheese kit.

Fine hardware - short changed supplies!
Recently ordered this creamery in a box starter kit for my wife. Went through the procedure as directed for making mozzarella (instructions are helpful) and have already produced 2 pounds of cheese. Huge problem has arisen though - although the packaging (picture and in person) states that 5 gallons of milk for 5 pounds of cheese, as well as the description stating that there is enough to make 5lbs of cheese - there aren't enough ingredients to do so if you follow the directions. The rennet has enough for 1 more pound (making the total 3) when following the directions exactly. Not sure which is wrong - the supplies/volumes or the directions, but there is no way to get 5lbs out of this kit as it's written/supplied.

When reaching out to customer service to inquire they responded that it only makes 3lbs (as if we couldn't read...). Not sure where that information is, but at the least it's grossly false advertising with a product only producing 60% of the advertised package for purchase. Very disappointed - especially considering I bought the whole starter kit to be let down like this. Surprised by the poor response by customer service as well as the clear errors in the process of designing these kits/directions.

Before the suggestion of our measuring skills resulting in using too much rennet and our ability to follow directions - I am a scientist, always working with complex directions and measuring volumes across a wide range. I know what I'm doing in that regard, the kit was drastically short.

What else do I need to start making cheese?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You'll need pasteurized milk (gallon per pound). Local dairy will produce a creamier flavor (did side to side testing) but will hit a higher price point. Store bought whole milk works just fine.
what size mold is in this kit? It doesn't say. Also, what do you use the beeswax for? is it interchangeable for red cheese wax?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, I just received my cheese kit for Christmas. The mold is 4.5 inch Diameter and 5 inch tall. Yes, the beeswax is a natural option for the red cheese wax to seal the block of cheese. I have used this yet, but am anxious to see how it all works out.
Is this packaged for gift giving? What is the total diameter for gift packaging/mailing? Any additional "fun gadgets" to add to enhance the gift?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The exterior of the package will likely indicate that it came from Northern Brewer. Each shipment is hand packed to ensure that it arrives intact, so the box dimensions might vary some. This kit is pretty complete!
Can you use store bought milk or raw milk?
Rebecca R on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can use store milk but the best results will come from raw milk if you can locate it.
Are the cream products organic and non-gmo?
