My first Jack cheese. Way too salty. Might just be me, I do not eat much salt at all. If it were not for the salt it would not be bad. (Very worried about my 2 gallon wheel now). Do you ever lower the salt in your cheese recipe's??

Not really. Salt is used to help control the fermentation of the cheese, preventing other microbes from growing.

It shouldn't taste really 'salty' though, but if you don't use much salt I guess it could come across that way.
