Got the tips from making this via this website :

http://soymilkmaker.com/making_tofu.html

and a bit of Zu's recipe for making the Soya Milk:
http://quickneasytreats.blogspot.com/2005_05_01_quickneasytreats_archive.html

This is a modified recipe from all

Ingredients:
150g soya beans(raw)
750 ml water

2 tsp Gypsum powder(get this from Gim Hin Lee at Haig Road)
1 cup of hot water

Method:
1. Soak soya beans overnight. Wash and drain.
2. Blend beans with 200ml water(out of the 750ml water).
3. Use a muslin cloth and squeeze out the pure soya bean milk.
4. Add remaining water to it and boil over medium heat.
5. once it starts to bubble, turn it to low heat and boil for another 5 mins.
6. Turn off the fire
7. Pour milk into a container.
8. Add gypsum powder with the hot water. Stir to dissolve it.
9. Then pour the gypsum solution into the soya milk.
10. Stir to mix it well.
11. Leave it to set(takes about 20 mins only)
12. Once its set, remove it and place the beancurd into a container of water to 'soak/drain'.
13. Remove and discard this water.
14. Use beancurd as per your own recipe.

Notes:
I left it in the fridge with a bit of clear water(tap water). I also tested how long it could stay fresh in the fridge. It gets sour by the 3rd day.

So its best that you make enough for one meal or 2 meals.

I am going to try again using less Gypsum powder as suggested by the website. to make it more like Silken Tofu. Mine was a bit firm, easier to hold.

Is it possible to use store-bought unsweetened soy milk instead?
