Finally, after 1 year, I’ve got a licensed certified pasteurizer. I rebuilt a very old unit over the past 6 months and today the inspectors gave a thumbs up and awarded me certification. Lots of welding and polishing went into rebuilding this 35 gallon unit. This baby heats up in 15 minutes and the milk is up to temp in 30. Chart recorder is reading dead on! I’m very grateful, and will be offering fresh mozzarella at the market this weekend.
We are planning ahead for next summer by making 20 to 25 lb wheels of classic parmigiano. Skimmed raw cows milk—- save the cream for mozz and decadent ice cream!! yum! These guys are brined for up to 3 days.
