A great investment

Rating:
Pros:
  • Cheap
  • Easy to Follow Instructions
Cons:
  • Just buy the dang Cheese Wax
  • 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.

Cheese making kit for Cheddar

Pros:
Cons:
Clean kitchen, un-homogenized milk grass fed, organic, cream at the top. Every thing went as advertised.

Cheddar was perfect, and will open the aged cheddar in late November for Thanksgiving.

Great product

Rating:
Pros:
  • all the basics of cheesemaking incl
Cons:
  • less Thermophilic/more Mesophilic
Bought this kit in Erie, PA at an emergency preparedness expo and have been making my own cheese for about 8 months now. While I did need to pick up a few things that weren't in the kit (big pot, wax, cheese board, mini fridge) the kit contained all the essentials.



I guess my only complaint would be that the kit contains a 50/50 mix of Thermophilic and Mesophilic bacteria and the Thermophilic is really only good for Parmesan. I would have liked more Mesophilic as there isn't enough to try out every recipe in the book.

Great Starter Kit!

Great kit for first time cheese making, easy to work with and great instructions. Plan on buying another to give as a gift.

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.
