Thinking ahead for the holidays, I decided to get a little creative. I used a basic 4 gallon cheddar recipe and just added chopped dried cranberries and fresh jalapeno peppers at the milling stage. The mold I used is my Kadova 2k with liners. I love this mold and the shape. The cheese out of the mold weighs in at 3 lbs. - 9 oz.
I watched my ph readings carefully. Started with 6.61 raw milk. Drained at 6.15 and milled at 5.35.
