Hello form Northern Wisconsin
« on: December 25, 2008, 04:20:23 PM »
I have not started making cheese yet, I'm still putting together the ingredients and equipment. Hopefully I'll have my first batch started by the new year. We have a couple goats that we will be milking in the spring (knock on wood).  I plan on using store bought milk to start with and then adding the goat milk to the mix.

My other fermentation hobbies include beer and wine making.

Good morning Boulderbrewer and welcome to the forum.  There is a brewing section further down, so feel free to add your experience, as a growing number of us also home brew.
What cheese are you hoping to start with, or is that still under consideration?

Hello Boulderbrewer, welcome to the forum, there's a few who have made cheese for years but most of us are learning here, big learning curve ;D, have fun.

Hello Boulderbrewer
I too am new to this forum and to cheese making.  It sounds really cool having a couple of goats that you can use eventually for their milk.  Keep us posted how it goes.

I was thinking of Queso Blanco to start as I wait for my rennet and cultures to arrive. Great minds think the same way JohnnyB ;D, I just read you intro post.

Amazing what you can find when you do a goolge image search. I hope nobody has this one already.
