There is even a guy just north of town that milks sheep. So plenty of different raw ingredients to fuel the process.
Keep us updated on your progress!
That's great! Although I live in dairy land (lovely smell) I don't have access to raw milk. I was just reading yesterday that sheep's milk is high in protein and vitamins and produces two and a half times more cheese than cow's or goat's milk. It also takes less rennet, less salt, the curds can be cut larger and less pressure is used.

Sounds like you are in a win-win situation!

I guess you are in the land of the mega-dairies. Although there are also more small dairies in California than any other state also. They may be in a different part of the state, but you could always call the county Extension office to see if you could get any info on any smaller operations in the area. Maybe you could do a beer for milk swap.

I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head, but cheesemaking has always interested me.

When I was younger, I used to make peanut butter and bacon bit sandwiches. Everyone thought I was crazy. I got one of my friends to try it and he went home and asked his Mom if they could have that for dinner. She called and complained to my parents about it. I haven't had one in many moons. I'll have to make one and see if they're still as magical as I remember.

My buckets are all 6.5 gallon puto. This is fermented with 1010, there's no way a bucket will hold it back even if I left the lid completely off.

You and your 8 gallon carboy! I want one. Just don't know where I'd find a giant milk crate to put it in.

I got this off eBay, an "acid" carboy, which as far as I can tell means that it has threads.
