Saves Money

Saves Money

Make your own gourmet Quark and save! This budget-friendly kit will make up to 100 kilos of Quark from store-bought milk.

How Does It Work?

Simply go to the store and get 2 litres of whole milk. The next day, you will have about a kilo of the most beautiful quark.

  1. Pour out about 1/4 cup of milk from your milk bottle.
  2. Place the bottle of milk into pot of hot water to heat to 31° C.
  3. Add the calcium chloride solution and culture, close the bottle and gently shake.
  4. Keep the bottle warm (over 22° C) for 24 hours.

You are required to inoculate the milk with culture when it is 31° C, and monitor the temperature to ensure it does not drop below 22° C, during the next 24 hours, so you will need a thermometer to check the temperature.

This Kit Contains:

You Will Need: (most of which can be found in your kitchen)

  • Large stainless steel or enamel colander
  • Piece of string
  • Somewhere to hang your cheese to drain

How Much Does It Make?

This kit contains enough ingredients to make about 80 to 100 kilograms of Quark!

How Do I Store My Ingredients?

We ship these products Australia wide, however, this kit contains ingredients that do require long term storage in a freezer, on arrival. Extended time out of a freezer will decrease the shelf life.

Shelf Life of Cultures:

When stored correctly, freeze-dried lactic cultures are typically viable long after any date on the pack.
