Them's the ones, and I'm dying with envy here.  It's my birthday in a couple of weeks, what do you think the chances are that I can convince my family that I deserve one of those mould?

Well truth be told, I can't justify @ $200 for one mould.  Wish I could though.

Still keep the pics coming, I love looking at the finished product.

Mine were not nearly that expensive.

Mine was something like 90. But now that the pain (and yes, it was painful) of the purchase is long behind me, i am very very very very happy with the moulds.

Truth be told, you can get used moulds out there.

Those things are expensive even when they are cheap over here.  But I'll keep my eyes open for used ones.

Those molds look great and they make up such a nice professional looking cheese.

Was telling Carter last night that i wished we were not all so far apart in that i would be happy to lend these out.  Kinda like a mould lending library.



Of course thats really just an excuse to borrow Carters cheese press, and curd knife,  and electric Stirrer,  and keg-vat, or.......

I'm working on a small self contained mixer like the one they picture in the parmesan making, that's a pretty standard type of mixer for distilling and brewing.

I just had one of my gouda's.  OMG was that good.  These were the best cheese made by me, hands down. 
My first impression of it was creamy, soft, not wet.
 
The curd was open more than i liked.  Will press under the whey next time.
 
Wonderfully mild flavor, with a long, evolving finish.
Velvety texture with a strong body.
 
I so wish i could share this with you all.
 
I am proud of this one.

They look soooo good, and I can't express the envy I have at the shape and texture.  Checked interior yes, but personally I really like that.

P.s., make a cardboard lightbox like I did,  get an eight dollar halogen light, and set your camera to macro :)  You guys here are the best and most knowledgeable I've seen, make your creations look as good as they taste.
