In the 162 amylase episode, you talk about homemade Boursin. Can you provide a recipe? For years I have been experimenting but I don’t know the secret of getting it airy and fluffy. Can you share your approach, please? BTW, I love your site. Thank you, Stefan

I bought some Amylase thinking it might help with the gumminess of oat milk. It seemed like it made it gritty. I added 10 drops to 1 cup of rolled oats and 4 cups of water and blended it in a blender then strained it through a 400 micron super bag. Would you please give me some help? My daughter is a college student and drinks oat milk. I’m trying to figure out a simple, yet good, way for her to make it on her limited budget. Thanks!

We have not tried to make oat milk with amylase but straining through a 100 micron superbag will probably remove the grittiness. 400 mesh may be too big for what you’re looking to do.
