How much water should the rennet tablets be dissolved in, and how many litres of milk should I use per tablet?

by Kelsey

The amount of water required to dissolve rennet tablets depends on which cheese you are looking to make, please refer to your specific instructions.

However as a general rule of thumb;

  • 1/4 tablet per 1 L (1 US qt)- each tablet doses 4 L (4.2 US qt) of milk which is commonly required in our recipes (except for halloumi which requires double the amount).
  • Dissolve 1 tablet in 20-40 ml of cool non chlorinated milk.
  • For liquid rennet see here
