Hello cheese forum members
I have been making cheese on and off for a couple of years, with varying success. Feta, ricotta and such are no-fuss events, as are farmhouse cheddars, but I have started to dabble in Gouda etc too. With my German background I also want to try my hands on cheeses I grew up with.

I want to limit the varying degree of quality, and still see cheese making to be a bit fickle, but oh so enjoyable.

I am about to move from mainland Australia to Tasmania, my view out the front door is right across the D'Encestreaux Channel over to Bruny Island. Up the road is the Grandvewe Cheese place. One could say I'm surrounded by cheese makers.

I'm one very curious cheese maker who has still a lot to learn and to ripen :)
I look forward to a good exchange on this forum.

Welcome to the forum from the other side of the world, The Netherlands, neighborhood of Gouda to be exactly.
It's always nice to have some other cheese makers around you, the farm where I get my cow milk is a small artisan dairy and the farmers wife where I buy my goat milk used to make cheese...

Holland! Brings back wonderful memories, particularly staying in a place called Zaltbommel by the river Waal a few times.

One of the cookbooks I keep dragging with me every time I move is an early 1980s promotional book with 'Frau Antje'. Hah :)

Reading in the forum, I realise how much I don't know!

LOL, yeah, Frau Antje, tulips, Gouda, Edam and Leiden cheese, little boys with fingers in dikes and windmills. How typical Dutch can we be...
Wait, I'll attach an image taken on my way to the farm to buy milk, from, the cows you see there.
