A Note from a happy customer:
Hey Ricki and Crew,
I just had to write and rave for a couple of minutes about how amazing you are! I started with Ricki's book, and have been gathering supplies and experimenting like a Crazed (bio)Chemist. Tonight was the first tasting of my first cheddar and jack cheeses. Your on-line jack details make the most amazing jack on Earth! Thank you so much for being my introduction into this wonderful hobby.
