Just took the little Manchego cheese (1 lb.) out of the press.  Here's a picture of it before its 6 hour brine bath.  The design on the top is strictly accidental from the cheese cloth mold liner.

I've never made Manchego, there's another recipe for it here.

Looks great, like the wave pattern on top (bottom) :), if you pull your cheese cloth liner tighter next time while pressing you will sadly not have that.

Tasted the manchego today on some toasted olive bread -- came out well -- it has a taste almost like feta -- I think because the recipe called for 1/4 tsp. lipase for 1 gallon of milk -- twice the amount Ricki Carroll's recipe uses.  But it is tasty.  Thus, fulfilling my dream of homemade bread, cheese and soup for a winter's meal.
