My micro cheese making equipment.
« on: October 22, 2016, 05:31:18 PM »
I figured I should post the pictures of my micro cheese system in the equipment section of the forum if I plan to keep updating them.

In case some didn't see my post in the introduction forum I have been building a micro cheese system that works as close as possible to the real deal.

I purchased the batch Pasteurizing vat and press table from Micro Dairy Designs. I made a couple modifications to that equipment and built a heated drain table myself.

Today is the first time trying out the drain table with some cheddar.

Tough decision.  Gibson Model O or a micro cheese setup.  Hmmm.

I made a 17 minute video showing the equipment being used to make a batch of cheddar if anyone wants to check it out.
