I made a Swiss that tasted like an asiago once. It was delicious, just not a Swiss. I have made several good Swiss cheeses since then and they never last long. I've been using ricki carrrolll's recipe but I am going to try some of Al's suggestions to see what happens to the texture and flavor. I am going try adding the culture to the milk at a cooler temp and then bringing it up to 90 and I am going to try cutting the curd twice.

I have enjoyed reading this thread and I appreciate all of the input on it.

My Swiss that I have now is 6 months old and it did weigh 4 lbs and I had put a tablespoon of caraway seeds in it. At first the caraway flavor was prominent but now it has a rich nutty cheese flavor to it. It goes great with corned beef. My next one will be plain

Thanks for all the help on this everyone, this has been a cheesy adventure ^-^
I will be doing another one soon, I am going to go back through this and put all of the info in a recipe form.
there is a lot of information on this thread,
at least I can say this was (is) an edible cheese instead of cheese crumbles like my first one.

I'll be making one soon also.  Plan on picking Alps brain on my recipe though.  I mean, he does do this for a living and, like the other pros on here, is very good about helping people out. ;D
