How much lemon juice does it take to turn a gallon of milk into curds to make yak chews?

The amount of lemon juice required to turn a gallon of milk into curds can vary depending on the acidity of the lemon juice and the desired consistency of the curds. Typically, it is recommended to use around 1/2 cup of lemon juice per gallon of milk.

To achieve curdling, lemon juice, which contains citric acid, is added to the milk. The acid lowers the pH of the milk, causing the proteins in the milk (casein) to coagulate and form curds.

Result: In 2 lb dried yak Chews are +- 3 cups of lemon juice!
