In cheese making cleanliness is of utmost importance. The easiest way to do this is put about 4 cm water in a stock pot load all the things you will use in and boil for 1 minute. If you are using the cheese soon ordinary cleaning is probably OK but if you expect to keep it sterile is the way.

You get about 60% cheese. These pictures were from 300ml cream and gave 180g cheese.

    I have made this same recipe but sustituting UHT full cream milk for the cream. The results is similar to cream cheese. Not as high a percentage return but very useful as a spread or similar.
