trouble with making homemade mascarpone

i tried making it using this recipe (http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread...) and nothing happened to the creme. it didn't even thicken.
i used to 250ml packs of fresh creme with 32% fat. i tried adding more lemon juice later, and even vinegar, but nothing worked.

the weirdest thing, the creme wouldn't whip afterwards. it remained completely liquid!

what am i doing wrong?!

thanks!

    Just "google" Homemade Mascarpone" and a whole lot on the topic will pop up. Here is just one:

    Seems like Tartaric Acid (cream of tartar) is a key ingredient. Tartaric acid can be purchased in health food stores.

    An interesting thread !
