Keeping an eye on the temperature of your milk is integral when making cheese. Having a good quality thermometer you can trust and is easy to read is one of the most important items pieces of equipment to have on hand. 

Testing for acid and pH levels during the cheese making process can help you achieve a more consistent finished product. Our testing instruments and kits will help you track these while making cheese.

                                          This is the second of these thermostats that I've ordered. We've used the first one for a year in a (larger) dorm-sized 'fridge that became my wife's original cheese cave. It works perfectly!



                                          As she became more amazingly proficient, though, and branched out into making other varieties of cheeses, there just wasn't enough space to age all of her various cheeses.



                                          "Go Big, or Go Home!"



                                          I just brought home a used commercial soft drink display refrigerator that was removed from a chain of service stations / quick marts that were undergoing renovation. She'll now have five very big racks for storing cheese (more can be added ... at a price) and be able to keep an eye on them through the glass door without altering temps needlessly. The new unit does have a thermostat (and a built in thermometer, lights, etc.), but if that doesn't cover the temp range that she needs, I can add this thermostat in just a few minutes.

                                          I have been making cheeses for 12 years now I use two 5 gallon 3 ply stainless steal pots and I color one orange usually but trying to keep these two pots at the same temperature is almost impossible and standing buy my stove watching them all day is also impossible to these ChefAlarms are just a life saver, I can't imagine doing without them now and yes I did purchase a second one it just makes making cheese so much easier and I don't know how I done without them.
