Recipe and Tools

Tools and Ingredients

  • 1 quart goat's milk (can be pasteurized, but not ultra-pastuerized)
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • salt to taste

Lemon juice can be substituted for the vinegar. Just follow this recipe for Homemade Goat Cheese Made with Lemon Juice.

Goat cheese can also be made with starter culture.


  • Non-reactive pot

    A non-reactive pot is important because certain metals, such as aluminum, will leach into the milk. Use a stainless steel pot to avoid this.

  • Thermometer

    You can get away with not using a thermometer by knowing what the milk looks like when it reaches 180 - 185 F. It will be nearing a simmer, with bubbles forming. However, you're more likely to have consistently successful results if you use a thermometer.

  • Cheesecloth
  • Strainer
  • Wood or stainless-steel spoon with a long handle
