I pretty much agree with most of GdD's answer, but I'll just add that this particular biga formula is already going to be problematic in terms of exactness, due to the fact that it requires 0.14 gram of yeast or 1/24th of a teaspoon.

The casein in mozzarella is worked and stretched, like the gluten in bread dough, but is stabilized by being cool and containing congealed fat. ...
