Man I hope my kit comes by Friday (which it should since I ordered it Monday morning)...

I called a local farm who has a market stand that sells raw milk from PA (they don't have any milk cows, but do make cheese from that milk). I will be going up there first thing Saturday morning to pick up 2 gallons of fresh milk to make some cheeses.

Does anyone think that my kegerator will be a decent storage space? I keep it kind of warm (above 40) and could reasonably keep it at 48-50 with beer in it, since that's a fine serving temp for me. Humidity seems good, as there's always a little condensation rolling around. I don't have a meter to check temp and humidity, so I kinda have to guess at the first batch.

Cant wait!

I just made my first batch of mozarella using a gallon of dairygold whole milk and it worked great. Smallish curds but they held together well and didn't seem to have the problems that UP is supposed to have. It goes on pizza this weekend.

Absolutely. I should probably have a few ready for Maryland Brewday Summer 08.

We just need to figure out how to get the Summer one planned for May. There are 2 brewfests I know of I june that will keep me occupied from attending much in the way of brew days.

Speaking of which - Harrisburg Brewfest is in June. We usually go up Friday night, party, have the brewfest saturday, then leave sunday around checkout time to head back to MD.

Get permission from SWMBO now, we'll be booking the hotels in March.

Making cheese is as long as doing AG brewday. I'm in 3 hours so far and just about getting ready to start the first weighted press into the mold, and PLENTY of stuff still to clean up.

Not an easy process, we shall see how it turns out.
