Thanks for all the help guys.
Alex; do you happen to know how long you can keep 'home-made' buttermilk? Can you freeze it? Don't think shops here in NZ sell it, not that that matters, we make enough I guess.
Boofer; this is what I find so interesting about cheesemaking, that there seems to be a hundred one ways to do any one thing! My recipe says not to submerge the cheese but only to bathe gently. Which I've done and waxed it, so I hope it works! (Waxing is such great fun, hard work keeping the kids out of it though)
Debi, thanks for the link on links, works a treat, very tidy. Thanks for all the other info. It's funny how a recipe can read so well on paper and then when you come to do it, all sorts of little cwuestions pop up.
