Two Cheese day

My first cheddar cheese used Mesophilic starter culture, wrapped in cheesecloth and now gently resting in my cheese cave. Then Derby Sage a cheese I've tasted from Derby in England. The hardest part is the wait, I make my own salami and sausages so intend to make a cheese and charcuterie plate with my first offerings.

Does the job every time!

I have been using New England Cheesemaking cultures for years in my cheesy adventures. It has never failed me. This and all of their cultures are perfect. I'm sharing pictures of my favorite use for mesophilic culture. First a 2 pound round of cheddar is made. Then I use the whey to make ricotta. When the cheddar comes out of the press I put the ricotta in and use that to make Ziergerkase cheese, soaking in a wine and tarragon brine after removing it from a long press time.
