Re: No Cheesing this week

Hi Vicki, Yep the hot weather caused me grief a few weeks ago....@#$%^&* Remember those pics of the cheese I made using the containers well unfortunately we had an unseasonally hot weekend just after I made them. It must have affected them when I was letting them dry before putting them in the c...

Re: First Batch of Camembert

Hi Hugh, Congratulations the cheese looks terrific. Where did you keep them while the mould was forming? Were you doing the good old freeze bricks and esky shuffle? I agree with Mojojo and Minnie about that method. It is fiddly but works well. I'll be interested to see how long they take in the frid...

Re: Hello from Tasmania

Hi Sara,
Welcome to this most informative site.
As far as cheesemaking goes if you like Haloumi then it's easy too.Because like the others suggested
it can be eaten straight away so you don't have to muck around with keeping it cool and maturing it.
Just scoff it immediately.

Ken.

Re: Another one from Tassie

Hi Helen,
A warm welcome and I'm looking forward to hearing about your cheesemaking adventures.
I agree with mojojo about the term "hoarder".
Much better to call it "preserver of history" I reckon.

Re: Hello from John

Hi John, Welcome from me to. The course I did was a one day class at Black Pearl Epicure in Fortitude Valley. Graham Redhead from here http://www.cheesemaking.com.au/index.html runs them as well as a two day intensive course. Minnie did that one I think. There are 2 courses this weekend check them o...

Re: Aldi Full Cream Milk

Hi Hugh, Make sure it is pasteurised but unhomogenised. When I did the class here in Brisbane that was stressed several times. According to Graham it's not the cream that's been homogenised that's the problem but the machine that does it. It cuts up the proteins required to aid the "setting&quo...

Re: Hello

Hi Hugh, Welcome from me too. Funny you mention adding flavouring as I am going to try that with Haloumi soon. The main reason for that is that you can eat Haloumi straight away.So it's easier to check your success of disaster. I'm not sure how flavouring Camembert or Brie would turn out though. Alt...

Re: Cheese from Goats Milk

Hi Hayley,
Yep a few goats would solve all my problems...and create a whole lot of different ones.
I'll keep searching for fresh milk.There's a dairy at Maleny I'll contact and hopefully I can get some from them or find a retail outlet for their products.

Re: Cheese Cave

Hi Pam andVicki, Thanks for that. I was surprised and delighted how it turned out. It's funny because I had been looking around everywhere and couldn't find any round containers. I saw Graham last Thursday and mentioned the same thing. How all the containers were square or oblong and he said it didn...

Hi Pam and Vicki, Pam I'm glad the blue and white combo worked.I had thought about trying to make some and now you've pushed me over the edge. "Mistakes" now if only I could get paid for mine I'd be able to pay someone to make cheese for me. Not as much fun I know but everyone needs to hav...

Re: Cheese from Goats Milk

Hi Hayley, No it doesn't have any acid added.I spoke to Graham Redhead about this and he recommended adding a little CaCl to the milk. The reason for this is because unless you can get a supply directly from a dairy then what you get may be a mix of fresh and frozen. That's where the problems begin ...

Re: Cheese Cave

Hi Vicki and Pam, These latest cheeses seem to have progressed quicker than the one I bought home from the class. Maybe because they're a little thinner who knows. They'll be getting wrapped and put in the real fridge tomorrow so I'll keep you both posted on their progress. Pam I'm looking forward t...

Re: Cheese from Goats Milk

Hi Vicki,
Probably best to ring first as they only had 1 smaller tray left and were waiting for stock to arrive.
Then again a road trip is always fun especially if shopping can be included..... :D

Re: Cheese Cave

Hi Pam, Graham recommended mixing iodine with cold water at the rate of 10ml to 15ml per 10 litres of water. The colour should resemble apple juice. I'm still trying to get a pic of the cheese and load to my photo site. Will try to do that in the morning but don't hold your breath just in case. Chee...
