Looking good Ian. So the vat is working good, I presume.

Oh!!!!
Worked a treat!!   I'm stoked.
Havent finished my stirrer bit yet so I had to do that by hand, but was a small price to pay for such a great result!!!
Cheers

That's impressive! What kind of stirrer are you working on? My vat is only 25 ltr and I'm thinking about a IKA RW-18, that's a lab stirrer and should be enough for my vat.

Impressive! What style of cheese is that? Taleggio? Looks great, Chicken man.

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

I'ts a cows milk Fetta, and the stirrer Herman, is an adapted orange juicer machine.  The type that you would push an orange or lemon half onto a spindle.
I took the motor out of the original body (was a weird shape) and fitted into a piece of PVC pipe. and wired an on/off switch into the vat console.
will post some pics so you can see what i mean...just need the bit for it.
