I set two containers of milk out Sunday evening to clabber...they STILL haven't clabbered. What gives?
They are covered with a teatowel, well they WERE until I got fidgetty and substituted cheesecloth after this morning's milking...I don't get it...

Ok, I have had the same problem getting my milk to clabber... I have read some of the other posts and I think I have it figured out. NOw I just need to know when you "save a chunck as starter" how do you do that? Do you save the "curds" or the "whey" Do you keep it in the fridge? How much do you add to your new batch to clabber? I am going to look through my KFC book...
