I was out there surfing the Internet today and stumble across a interesting post on cheese making kits. I wish I could remember where I was and I would link to it. For some reason I keep thinking about it and ended up Googling cheese making. All kinds of wonderful sites came up. I had no idea that making cheese was so easy and that you could just do it in your home. I love cheese. I crave cheese. I think it would be fun as a hobby to make my own cheese. Right now I'm way to busy with the kid's, the yard and garden, working and the rest of life's craziness. I thought I would share some of what I found.
For one this site was interesting cheese making for beginners. It really explained the science of cheese making. They also explained what you would need just from your kitchen to start with.
I also found kit's on sale at other sites. I thought they were very reasonable and came with everything you would need. I think the kit below is what I would start out with. It has a book and all the goodies I would need.
I found this kit at the New England Cheesemaking Supply Company. They have been helping cheese makers since 1978. The sell on their website books, kits, DVD's equipment, package deals and much more. The site is very easy to move around and explore all that they have to offer.
