New to forum from Alberta
« on: October 29, 2012, 11:10:32 AM »
Hello everyone. Happy to be here.
Professional chef and sausagemaker by trade , but have always loved eating and making cheese.
I have been making the same colby recipe for over 20 years with buttermilk as a starter with great results.

But I received a mozza kit and a brie kit as a gift from my wife and now I am having cheese problems.lol

So, I hope to learn a lot more about acid levels after my mozza curded beautifully, but started dissolving once it was draining and each dip in the hot whey made it worse.

I also hope to learn whether to salt my mozza curd directly or add the salt to the whey.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Welcome to the forum!

Hope you find your answers! Lots of information and resources here. Some very knowledgeable people here.

I have little experience with mozz, but I believe you want to add salt directly to the mozz.

Would love to see your colby recipe! I have made colby once and it is now aging in my "cave".  Can't wait to give it a try.

Thank you for the welcome.
I will try to post the colby recipe once I get back home today.

Interested to hear about your "Cave"
Could you describe it for me?
