and was it the harder 'american' mozz or the hand kneaded type? i've tried the kneaded one a few times, but never had too much luck.

The AHS mozz is definitely the harder "American" type. I've made it a couple of times but frankly I'm not that big of a fan. Mostly I use the kit ingredients to make softer cheeses now. I inadvertently made a brie-type cheese once by making a small round of soft cheese and forgetting it uncovered in the fridge. The outside formed a rind and the inside ripened really nicely!

i've made some very good cheese by making a chevre, then adding some mold from a storebought blue. all the taste of a great blue cheese, but with a smooth, creamy texture that was incredible.

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.
Easy as pie.

That stuff was pretty soft and easy to work with (in my limited experience).

+1. Bought it for Christmas last year and it's easy. In fact, so easy, I'm sure even 'bozo could make it. maybe

Before today, I have never even thought about making my own cheese. I'll have to add it to the "to-do..sometime...eventually" list.
