Frequently Asked Questions
help - it won't coagulate!
Ahh, no coagulation is a frustrating phenomenon. I have a couple of suggestions for you: - when you soak your soy beans overnight, don’t throw away the water - use this same water to boil the beans & make the milk, as it plays a crucial part in the curdling process - increase the amount of lemon juice, and/or use a fresh lemon. If you’re still struggling to get coagulation you can add a dash of vinegar. - make sure the milk is still hot-warm when you add your coagulant.
