Any of you folks make your own cheese?
« on: April 12, 2014, 01:20:44 pm »
I've never thought about doing this before but it might be a neat hobby to try.  Just wondering if it's more hassle than fun or if it's worth pursuing.  Any success stories?

I tried the mozzarella kit and it failed pretty bad.  Still have the ball in the fridge just hate to toss it out.  I fully intend to try it again though.  I didn't get enough whey drained before I started heating and long story short it turned out like rubber.  I would be interested in hearing tips from some pros though and will keep an eye on this thread.  Homemade smoked cheese sounds like heaven to me....

The wife and I looked into it and decided I had better stick to buying cheese and spend my time and money on smokers and such.
