oh, interesting. i am making "feta-like" cheese from cows milk with a veggi rennet i buy here http://www.kaesereibedarf.de/
so if anyone in germany or europe is looking for microbial rennet that is not made from/with GMOs this is a good source. they state under "info" that they dont use anything that is derived from GMOs.

I made cheese with vinegar in the past, depending on the type you use it gives a flavour that can be off and you dont get as much curd with vinegar as you would get with rennet.
you can also use lemon juice or acid, but i guess it is also not super effective.

i also heared about fig bark.. would be very interesting to know if there is anything one could grow that gives good results.

HI there,

i was wondering if there are people here from germany?
after living in israel for 2 zears now we will move back to germany next winter (and hopefully buy a small homestead).
It would be amazing to have some people around that care about the same things and are interested in all things natural.
We are new to permaculture and think it would be nice to profit from each others experiences.

would be happy to hear from someone

HI there,

we would really like to build a RMH in germany and would like to know if anyone knows of anyone that tried getting that approved...
germans have a mass of regulations and as i am no lawyer i find it really hard not to get lost in the regulation jungle.

I would probably just build one but the thing with the insurance is a big problem. never mind if the RMH was responsible for the house burning down or not you would probably never see the money.

So: is there anyone out there in germany that knows what would be the best way to approache this?

Would really appreciate some advice...

Thanks a lot.
