Default I now will invade the Cheese Making Forum

Hi all,

I just got a starter Mozzarella kit from AustinHomeBrew and made my first batch. The wife loved it, I loved it, and even the dog loved it (after looking it over once or twice). I'm now interested in trying something probably very difficult: Mizithra

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mizithra

I know it's made with goat or sheep milk and whey but I don't have that and I'm wondering if I can substitute cow's milk and whey or just the whey.

By the way: here's the Caprese salad my wife and I made with the cheese.

Serving that dish on a blue plate is a faux pas.

Frankly, I'd serve it on a strip of aluminum foil if that's what I have. I didn't asking about etiquette, I asked about cheese.

I'd just try it with the cow's milk. It might not turn out exactly how you expect, but I sure it will be edible.

I'll pistolwhip the next guy who says "faux pas".

Faux pas is under appreciated.

On a serious note, how easy was the cheese kit from AHS? Every time I'm placing an order there I consider cheese, but I haven't read up on it enough to ever pull the trigger. But making fresh mozzarella in the coming months would be perfect with all the fresh garden tomatoes ripening.
