Howdy from NSW, Australia
« on: Yesterday at 02:29:48 AM »
G'Day!
Yep another Aussie.
I've been a long time lurker on the forums so thought I'd come out form the shadows and introduce myself.
I have been making cheese for quite a few years now and this forum has been plenty of help along the way.

So about me: I live in the central tablelands in NSW (near Mudgee) about 4 hours from Sydney. Cheesemaking started when I got a cheese making kit for a birthday. Started (as everyone does I assume) with the simple fresh cheeses and slowly worked through them all till I found the ones I like to make and eat. One day I might get a few goats (goats are more suited to small acreage) and create cheese from beginning to end... but until them I am happy to use milk from a 'nearby' dairy once a month for my cheese making.

Another - this one was a pepato.
I used pink peppercorns and they ended up altering the colour of the cheese to a faint orange.

A blue goat with whats left of the pepato being consumed with some friends.
The curds on the blue were a bit too soft and all the cavities closed up but flavour was still good.

Welcome from another Aussie. Your cheese look brilliant. Have one from me. I haven't been real active lately. There's just been too much on unfortunately. I hope to be back into it again soon though.  :)
