  • Easy to Follow Instructions

  • Seriously
  • save yourself the time
I got this kit at a brewing supply store. I was nervous about pouring two gallons of milk in the pot, but it was easy to do and I think it's going to work real nice! I do wish there was an option or strong recommendation to buy the cheese wax - you don't need it to age the cheese, but you will almost certainly want to (unless you're into mold rinds). Still gets five stars because of how cool it was.

I made cheddar, yippee!

Yippee!! Although when my grandson (age 5) and I made your mozzarella, we were very pleased with ourselves, I was very nervous about my farmstead cheddar. I took it (aged for 2 1/2 months) with me to my sisters house last weekend thinking if it was a flop we could just bury it in the woods and nobody would ever know. Well, my (your) cheese got raves. I was only allowed to bring home half the left-overs. Folks here will have to wait for the next batch. Thanks so much for making this so easy, so much fun, and so good. I now can not wait for this weekend so I can get busy making some more.

I've got a new hobby, CHEESEMAKING

I was astonished to get the hard cheese kit that I had ordered so quickly. It was perfect timing, too. A mid-morning mail delivery, had the house to myself, and before I knew it a batch of Monterey Jack was underway, and is currently drying on my kitchen counter. I can tell this hobby is going to nicely complement my beer brewing hobby, and I think my next batch will be the Farmhouse Cheddar, as that should be nice and sharp at cider pressing time.
