Default Anyone make cheese?

I needed to place an order from AHB and I am so stocked up with brew ingredients I diddnt just want to order a $12 item so I seen this and thought what the hell:

Basic Hard Cheese Kit [01686]
$31.99

The Basic Hard Cheese Kit makes nine different cheeses: Farmhouse Cheddar, Gouda, Monterey Jack, Feta, Cottage Cheese, Colby, Parmesan and Ricotta. With this kit you can make your own additive and preservative-free cheeses. The kit comes with a detailed recipe booklet outlining all the steps in the cheesemaking process. This kit lasts about 2 years in the refrigerator and makes up to 30 pounds of cheeses.

The basic hard cheese kit contains:

One cheese mold
Vegetable cheese rennet
Mesophilic starter
Thermophilic starter
Dairy thermometer
1/2 oz. calcium chloride
Reusable cheesecloth

Oh, I have been meaning to start a thread like this. I got a basic kit for Christmas and am going to be making some cheese this week. Interested to hear what others say...

Keep us informed how it goes. I've had that in my shopping basket several times but haven't purchased yet.

Oh you are going to be amazed at how much milk it takes to make a pound of cheese.

Nope. He had a bit of a blowout with the site admin and moderators, and he's not allowed around these parts anymore.

As far as the volume of milk thing: it'll help to use whole milk. Or fresh cow or even goat milk if you have any farms nearby.

My girlfriend and I just made mozzarella from an AHS kit. Not too bad, but we need a bit of practice to get the technique down. The hard cheese kit sounds interesting.
