Hello, Cleveland
« on: January 02, 2013, 05:23:22 AM »
Greetings, everyone. My name is Brian and I reside just west of Cleveland, OH. I am relatively new to cheese-making, having started a bit over a year ago. One of my primary objectives here is to refine my skills in the making of both hard cheeses and mold-ripened soft cheeses.

I spent about an hour yesterday pouring through the forums and was very impressed with the quality of information I found. I foresee these forums being a tremendous touchstone on my cheese journey.

I should probably add that I just bought the local creamery I was trained at. Actually, it won't be legally finalized until next week, but for all intents & purposes I am now the running the business. I am either crazy or awfully ambitious - I suppose time will tell  ???

The business model is driven more by fresh cheeses, however we do make a couple of hard cheeses. We make both goat and cow milk products. I have many ideas for other products and I will certainly bounce those off of you in the coming weeks.

I look forward to being part of this community.

Cheers

Hi Brian and Welcome. :)

Congrats with the new creamery.

Will you have a tour for CheeseForum members if they happen to pass by?

Cheers!

A creamery to run!  How exciting.  I hope you keep us posted and perhaps sometime do a post about the different cheeses you make, or post a website address if there is one.  Welcome to you!

Hi Brian and welcome to the forum. There is a wealth of information here and many knowledgeable people  happy to answer your questions. Which creamery are you buying? I built some curd knives for Lake Erie Creamery there in Cleveland a few years back.

Thanks for the well wishes, folks. I do appreciate it.

I have a few more legal things to finalize before the sale is complete. That should all be finished next week. Once that is done I will be more than happy to tell you all about what we're currently doing and also discuss the ideas I have for new cheeses.

That's pretty exciting, and I imagine inspiring to many here on the forum.  Congratulations! Please keep us up-to-date on what goes on with your new place.  I'm sure there are many of us that are interested in what you'll be doing.
If only I could make cheese as well as I grow a mustache...
