The kit contains almost everything to make a variety of cheeses. The instructions are good for a beginner. The cheese basket lacks a follower and plates, saucers, bowls were either too large, or left depressions in first cheese. So finally hppened on a wooden flat bottomed salad bowl for my next cheese. For aging the instuctions say to wax the cheese which was also not included. Creativity came with making a homemade cheese press and weights (with help of bathroom scale). And created my own molds. But I have been making cheese the entire month since I received the kit. I am hooked on making cheese unfortunately I haven't tasted any since they are all in the aging process. Today a triple creme cheese is being made and I will have opportunity to taste that in a couple weeks.
The basic cheese making kit was the perfect way to start home cheese making! The instructions were very easy to follow and I have fallen in love with cheese making!
Just got after waiting about 10 days my Basic Cheese Making Kit which was a blast to use and learn how to make cheese. I always thought I would like to make cheese because I love it and grew up hand milking cows on a farm. The kit made it easy and was complete so it was easy to get started. I am now making cheese every week and can’t wait to try new types. The kit was a great way to get started.
