« on: March 15, 2013, 10:48:07 PM »

There are lots of reasons that those books don't include pH markers. First, there are no absolutes. Second, you as the cheesemaker can control the pH and therefor the outcome of your cheeses. More acidic = drier and crumblier. So you make a certain kind of cheese, see how it turns out and adjust on the next make.
