Cheese Making

After more than a couple false starts, we are finally trying our hand at making cheese and other fermented dairy products.  Below is our self-assembled cheese making course, pulled mainly from recipes on the internet.  We will try to keep our progress up to date, complete with posts describing our successes (and failures too, in case you were worried).
