Thanks for the pictures Tea, got to admit, those are the best looking curds I've seen! Like you say, fresh milk. I assume you used more than 2 litres of milk to get a ~3 lb cheese.
Speaking of which, I buy milk here with names like Kroger or HEB, Mungalli Creek sounds much more fun!
Caught, I googled Mungalli Creek, you must be in Northern Queensland, lucky you! I had a two week holiday in Gold Coast & Brisbane with my family about 8 years ago, great area of the world. OK off topic.
