Anyone have ideas of places to buy cheesemaking supplies in the Pittsburgh region? I'm just getting started with making some homemade mozzarella and would like to know where to find rennet.

    My guess would be the Strip at Penn Mac.

      Indeed, check out Pennsylvania Macaroni Co. They make their own mozzarella so it wouldn't surprise me if they have everything you need.

      I see on their website that they carry Junket Rennet Tablets:

      You may want to email their customer service department first. They are very helpful and provide prompt answers: info@pennmac.com. Alternatively, you can call 1-800-223-5928.

        South Hills Brewing is your best bet. They have a small cheese making section and a basic starter kit. For anything more you have to order online.
