Does anyone know why sometimes my whey is a clear greenish liquid whilst other times it almost looks like milk – very white – even though curd has separated out. I’m using my own raw unpasteurised goats milk, keffir as my starter and liquid rennet. I’m making both soft and semisoft cheeses.
Clare, I have had big variations in whey color and clairity and never knew just what was causing it. I use a variety of different milk so I just figured it was because of that difference. Clear, slightly yellow, and cloudy are my rainbows but slightly green must come from the goat’s diet for that milking. Wish I could help more.
