The last epoisse photo or information that Sheepj76 posted was at the beginning of the process.  How did this cheese turn out?

Certainly looks great.  Sorry, but I don't know how to access reply #37.  Does this contain a recipe? Can you illuminate?

Hi andreak,

Click on the word "this" above the picture.  That will take you to the thread in question.  You can see at the top of each response, Reply #etc, just scroll down until you find Reply #37.  :)  Looks a fairly straightforward make.  I can't tell from the post what size the moulds are, or how strong the rennet is though?

Thanks Jeff.  I used 5 1/4" molds and 1/2 tablet of rennet, instead of the liquid, but if you continue to follow the thread the entire make with all of the info is there.

To Al Lewis,

Thanks for your posts.  I just copied your recipe and will try it next Thurs.(the day the raw Jersey is delivered).  I am so excited about this
possibility that I would like to give you a cheese.  I will be posting photos as it progresses, but I will start a new thread with your name
on it.  Now, , , to try to give you a cheese!  This is only my second attempt at doing this.  Please let me know if it works.

This is for Jeff.  I almost forgot that I wanted to give you a cheese for helping find 'Reply 37'.  So here goes.
