    The citric acid was $1.25 for 4 oz..and the rennet ( I got the tablets 10) for about $4.00 but you only use 1/4 tablet for a batch so that is for about 40 batches.....Got mine at a Home Brewshop....but you can get supplies at Cheese making supply store....it is easy. good way to start is with Mozz .
