And this is probably why Adamantius used a yogurt starter
in his cheese for The Pilgrim's Picnic Basket.

I have occasionally (accidentally) found milk in the back of my refrigerator that's past the expiration date and have been able to get it to curdle a little just by gentle heating.  To complete the job of separating curds and whey I added a tiny bit of lemon juice (no rennet in the house that day).

So now I avoid buying really fresh milk for cheese making.
