Default I swear... this place is killing me.

Now I am hooled on making cheese too. Was reading some of the posts in the cheese section, got interested, did some due diligence on google and Wiki and ordered a cheese kit from Austin. Figured I would order a couple of the different kits since they were pretty cheap and it doesn't require a massive investment in equipment. A cheese press looks pretty easy to build and the rest is temp control, stirring, waiting and ageing. I can do that... So now I am patiently waiting for the big brown truck to slide in at my place and bring me my christmas present early to me. I'm payin for it so it can be christmad whenever I want.....
Bob

I need to make some homemade cheese, that sounds good. I do make yogurt, but have never tried cheese.

I've had cheddar packet for years. I built a press last year. Still have not taken the time to actually make some cheese. Maybe this weekend, if the wife doesn't pencil me in for some X-mas shopping or other holiday festivities.

And I thought we were bad - we got a Cabernet/Merlot wine kit last December and just put it in the carboy last week

Good news, everybody!

Wife has more or less given me permission to make cheese tomorrow night! I volunteered to go shopping with her in GR this weekend. She even said she could go alone if I needed to be home with my cheese, but of course I told her I'd love to go shopping with her (I ain't stupid.) Just as long as I have the time to rotate the cheese as needed the first few times. From what I remember after the initial "making" the cheese sits in the press and turned over a few times as the weight is increased.

Time to go read up on some tutorials!

I haven't made cheese lately, but I was doing it weekly for a while!

I blame all of you guys for my cooking hobby, soapmaking hobby, the cheesemaking, the soda making, and of course the brewing.

The winemaking hobby I admit I did start on my own. You guys encouraged the rest of the obsessions!

I gained some weight since I've been on this forum- I'm up 3 pounds in 6 years due to the "hobbies"!

Next thing you know you'll be blowing yourself up with NaOH trying to follow Yooper's soap post.

Have you guys made yogurt yet? It was so quick and easy that I'm never buying yogurt again..just milk and fruit preserves. Total fermentation time was 8 hours!

Ain't real food wonderful? My cheese consumption is about the same, but my beer and wine consumption is up between five and tenfold in the past two years and I'm still in the same range. I figure I'd be up 5 - 10 at least with filtered/pasteurized. No, I don't have any science or references to imply these are related, but you'd be hard pressed to convince me there aren't benefits to live food.
