Thanks to all for the replies! Wow, got some learning to do (you guys are intimidating and awesomely talented). I go tomorrow to buy my CL found "cheese cave", a wine cooler with 2 different zones with controllable temps and humidity, for $60 I figure what the heck. I need to find an INEXPENSIVE alternative to purchased cheese moulds; I am a little afraid of using PVC in this acid an environment, any suggestions? I have a bunch of questions about using slurries but I need to do a search first and post a new thread on it. Thanks guys, I am looking forward to this!
