I just found this intro. page and thought that sounded like a pretty good idea. To make a super duper long story short, my wife and I ended up in France on a fluke and discovered French cheese ( if you have a few minutes check out my blog, it's a pretty cool story http://mypoemsurgery.blogspot.com/2013/01/january-9th-2012.html
If you read the first post only you will get the idea and all went as planned but if you have the time check out the rest. I was introduced to cheese on that trip. Stinky rank awful delicious Muenster cheese. That is actually my ultimate goal with all of this, to produce a Muenster style cheese that will clear the house in 30 seconds. I understand this will take a while.
I don't need to explain my new found passion to any of you... you get it. Making cheese is pretty much all I think about any more. I have purchased the basics, made a cave, tried a bunch of recipes in the last three or four weeks and can't get enough. Fortunately Gianaclis Caldwell lives not too far from me so I have signed up for a few of her classes. I picked up two gallons of raw goat milk last night and I am headed out to get a couple gallons of raw jersey milk tomorrow after work. Not sure what we will have at the end of saturday but it will be a great day. I have had some failures already but the ready to eat quick cheese I have made were really good (feta, chèvre, yogurt, creme freche), there are a couple blue goudas a cheddar and gruyere in the cave and I can't wait to crack them open in a few weeks.
I could go on and on and sometimes I do go on and on depending on the amount of free time I have, excitement level, caffeine level etc. I just wanted to say a quick hello, introduce myself and let you all know there is another cheese making addict on board.
Short on free time at the moment
If any of you are in the area, let's make some cheese.
Hello again everyone,
