Made Cheddar on Saturday (Well, Friday night, but it carried over into Saturday. I forgot to clip it yesterday and this morning!!

I am constantly seeing new hobbies to try. Problem is my dear wife gets tired of hearing about them and the clutter they sometimes make in the house.

This weekend I made the cheese and bottled some Chocolate Porter, kegged a wit, cleaned the sink and counter. Cleaned a bunch of bottles, counted up the empties and basically cleaned the rest of the kitchen.

Then I made pasties yesterday and messed it up again a little. Tonight I should be able to get the rest of the house cleaned and get ready for the holidays. Still quite a lot of time to go, so I imagine I'll find time to make more mess with cheesemaking or soap or something. Oh and there are still plenty of bottles to clean. I found some that I forgot I had, not to mention the several boxes of molding bottles in the basement.

You made pasties? With tassels and everything?

We made Colby on Saturday. Did the ricotta with the leftovers too. Yeah. Got a heaping serving spoon worth.

The Colby looks like it's working. Tried a small piece right out the press. It tastes more milky, buttery than cheesy, but a cheese taste was there. At least it didn't taste like sour milk.

D'oh!

I meant pastys. Pasties were after.

Cheddar was still fairly moist in the middle. I'm giving another day or so before I wax my cheese.

Colby would be interesting. I could make my own colby jack. Wife would like that.

I'd get my wife a set, but a couple half moon hubcaps would fit better and cost less. Colby or monteray jackwith Jalapenos is good along with a sausage cheese too.

Have my Mozzarella curds setting at this very moment. It's an Austin HB Kit, but has been a simple to follow set of directions so far. No suprises, the kit has followed the directions perfectly about curd formation and ripening. I love it when a kit works without having to quess what to do next. I guess I should ask Double D pastie's to bring home another gallon for some Feta tommorrow. I broke my truck or I would have already done that myself. I am jazzed, I love it when a plan comes together and works simply. AHS gets 2 thumbs up on the kit and the excelent directions. I did it, so I know just about anybody else on the planet can too....

Ha! Last night my wife said she was going to bed. I said I'd be there as soon as I got done WAXING MY CHEESE! She said why don't you come to bed and wax your cheese?

Well, the wax was already melted, so I put one quick coat on and put the cheese back in the fridge.

Well I'm impressed. 5 Bucks and I made some pretty decent cheese already. Nothing like that good old instant satisfaction. I am about ready for the next rung on the ladder. A brined Feta, followed by a Jack with Slim Jims and jalapeno and wax aged in the kegerator at 55 to sharpen it up a bit. Slim Jims are such an under used ingredient and really bring a lot of flavor to the party in a very small package. Run em in the food processor till broken down to very small bits and added just before pressing. Should be an excelent tasting cheese advebture. I'lll let ya know how it works out.
