Just want to introduce myself. My nickname is Tiss. I have a small herd of Lamancha and Alpine dairy goats and have been making cheese for about three years. I expanded the herd last summer and finally have all the milk I could want for experimentation. I also have a BFF with a Jersey and am able to trade goat milk for cow regularly.
I've really been pushing myself to become a better cheesemaker this summer. Dear Husband bought me a wine cooler on Craigslist and that has opened up worlds of possibilities. It's already full and I need another. Here are some pictures of my creations. I look forward to learning even more here!
The Bearded Ladies and New Herd Sire
A Care Package for a Friend
Valencay- I gave the pyramid shaped one away
My 2nd Goat Gouda
Crottin- I cut this one very young. The rest of the batch had a nice ooziness under the rind. I guess it was too delicious to snap pictures.
