Adding some salt really helps.

I make farmer's cheese, but that doesn't requires any equipment.

Good thing I didn't post it for you then. I think a large percentage of the Indian population may take offense to that.
We happen to love Paneer because you can flavour it in so many ways.

Thanks to all the responses. Hoping to get into town some point this week. Sadly my darling 2yr old niece gave me her sickness bug, and I've been ill all weekend.

No need to take it personally, Snip. Different strokes for different folks.

I'm not. I just personally prefer not to knock other people suggestions just because I don't have "a taste for it" but instead give suggestions I enjoy.
As you said, different strokes for different folks.

I wasn't knocking your suggestion. The OP asked whether people here have done it and whether it's worthwhile. I've done it; in my opinion, it's not worthwhile. Your opinion is different. That's not an unusual circumstance here

Very good and fun idea to make its own cheese !

I do it very simply :
- 1 liter simmering goat milk ( taste different than the cow milk )
- 1,5 TBsp lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Drain it overnight in a cloth, in the shape of a ball

You will obtain fresh delicious cheese. At home we eat it sprinkled with thyme and olive oil, on bread.

Yum

Labneh is good too... not exactly cheese per se, but it's close. Suuuuuper easy to make with storebought yogurt but the real key is making your own yogurt. Served with meze, mmmmmmmm.

Had to google "labneh". Cool, another name for yogourt cheese.
