Can I use fresh goat's milk to make cheese?
Yes you can use fresh goat's milk to make any of the Mad Millie cheeses. However, goat's milk curds tend be more delicate so they will need to be handled more gently. When adding rennet to goat's milk you may have to reduce the temperature of the milk to 5 degrees lower than what is stated in your recipe.
 
Can I use fresh sheep's milk to make cheese?
Yes you can use fresh sheep's milk to make any of the Mad Millie cheeses. However, when using sheep's milk for cheese making you will need to use about 3-5 times less rennet than stated in your recipe. You should also cut the curd into larger cubes to prevent the cheese from becoming too dry.

Can I use UHT milk?
You can use UHT milk for simple cheeses that do not contain rennet such as ricotta, quark and yoghurt.
It is good to use UHT milk in quark and yoghurt because ultra heat treated milk denatures more proteins than normal milk, which results in a better consistency.
