Here is my cheese at apporx. 50 lbs of pressure. Will take it out of the press at about 8 in the morning hopefully it will be ready to dry and then paint with wax in about 4 to 5 days.

So in my first attempt I think I screwed up. I add calcium chloride and let sit for an hour before adding bacteria culture. A quick look back at directions I should have added it right away. So my milk sat at 86 dehrees buliding whatever bacteria that was not the culture. So is it safe to continue?

If you are asking me I could not tell you. The recipe I did did not use calcium chloride..

Well I hope you get the answer you need. Feed some to the neighbors barking dog if it dies don't eat it if it lives you should be fine... Just kidding I don't think it will make you sick it may not taste the way you wanted it to but you should be fine to eat...

Steve, great thread and cool looking press. You've inspired me, waiting on the mail for rennet and citric acid to make some mozzarella but see myself jumping into this.

Wish you still lived close by but happy for you and the family you got out of this stinky dusty valley.

Thanks Dan, It took up over half my day doing the farm cheddar but it sure was fun.

Anybody make a press like this one? I'm thinking it is the route I'll take. I like the aesthetics of it. Or should I stick with something more traditional?
