This hasn't happened before, and it may be that it isn't fresh enough. Any suggestions on what to do with this?? The only thing I can think of is adding more buttermilk or lemon juice and making panir cheese - but that's a lot of panir cheese! Thank you for any suggestions,
Sarah

Why would you boil milk anyway? It kills all the good bacteria! The only thing I can think of though is that is wasn't fresh to start with or ... was is raw or pasteurized? Makes sense to me that it did this if it was pasteurized to begin with.

it's pasteurized already, raw milk is still very illegal here. so I bring it to a simmer, cool it, then culture it. With the kefir grains I don't scald it, but the yogurt seems to work better if I do. It has never curdled before though, and I'm not sure I want to eat it now... but sure do hate to waste all the milk some poor organic cow lactated!

anyone know what to do with this?
