Ewephoria
« on: May 11, 2013, 06:11:23 PM »
Any ideas about how to make this cheese? 

http://www.worldaccordingtocheese.com/2011/10/ewephoria-for-tastebuds.html

A lady at the farmers market today bought some Manchego and said her daughter was a big cheese buff (what sensible person isn't?), and she had a cheese blog.  So I checked out her blog and came across this gouda-type sheep's milk cheese that sounds interesting, and perhaps delicious. 

So, before I start throwing milk at trying to figure this out, I'd appreciate suggestions, direction, etc.

Reading her description makes me want to give it a try.

I wonder how the sweet tasting finish is accomplished?

Likely due to proline (or some combo of threonine, asparagine, phenylalanine). Accomplished through adjuncts or SLAB blend for gouda. In danisco's line, eg flav 43 and the can of fb304.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

All right.  I'll keep you apprised when I tackle this little baby, probably not until mid to late summer.  Thanks.

Did a speck of reading.  The cheese has zero sugar content, so I have to wonder how much like candy it actually tastes.  Yet every article or review I see of this cheese is comparing it to "very sweet" butterscotch, or caramel.  They must use a very specific culture.  Reading the description reminded me a lot of the Dubliner I just got a block of.  Very fruity and "sweet" it was.  I wouldn't quite describe it as butterscotch though....
