Peasant Gouda #2
« on: July 28, 2013, 03:01:58 PM »
Following my previous effort, I decided to include this as my second cheese in my cheese hat trick yesterday.

Initial pH: 6.65

2 gallons of Cozy Vale Creamery whole raw milk
1 gallon of Twin Brook Creamery whole creamline milk
8 cubes Kazu MC
1/8 tsp LM57
1/2 tsp CACL
1/16 tsp Renco dry calf rennet

floc factor: 3
floc'd in 10 minutes

weighed each cheese prior to brining. slight variation in weights

whey-brined for 4 hours

now out to air-dry before moving into the cave

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

They look great! I love the shape those molds give the cheese. What's the difference between a peasant gouda and a regular gouda?

What's in a name? A Gouda by any other name is Gouda, but my Peasant Gouda...well, that's for the peasants I might deem worthy enough to bestow on them (at Christmas).  ;) Plus which, it's a simple, unassuming little cheese.

And it joins the illustrious lineage of others such as Mellow Yellow Garlic Gouda, Pont l'Évêque...n'est–ce pas?, My Sweet Edam, and Gooey & Sinful. Giving them a distinctive moniker raises them up and makes them feel better in the Boofer Cave Network.

So do names like, "The one my wife thinks smells like toot" make my cheeses feel worse?  :-[
If only I could make cheese as well as I grow a mustache...

Gee Mike, maybe so!!   >:D. I have made worse comments about a few skanky b linens flavored cheeses....
I think the stinky ones have good self esteem though and don't suffer too much.   ;)

Maybe....

I think some of my cheeses develop a real attitude problem: Boofer's Fancy, Creamy Blueberry Delight. I won't have any of that! :P
