Basic Cheese First Run

Having a lot of fun with this kit. Takes patience for sure, waiting for it to age is the hard part. Here are my first runs of Cheddar, Coldy and Montery Jack. The other cheeses I made got eaten up before they could be photographed. This site has everything you need and the kit has the necessities to start.

Fun & Different Gift for Cheese Lovers

This holiday I have been looking everywhere for gifts that are more activity based for adults and I am so happy I found this company. All the kits I found were more targeted towards children and this one was an enjoyable for adults. My friend enjoyed her gift cause not only does she love cheese but it was something to do while being stuck inside in this pandemic.

Perfect way to go!

How can you go wrong. If you are at all interested in trying your hand at making a first batch of it is. This kit has everything you need to give it a try. The enclosed ingredients and equipment are first class, the directions are straight forward, more than easy to follow and if you follow the suggestions through, you can truthfully call yourself an amateur monger. If you need help or have a question, get ahold of these folks and you’ll be back on the road. First class outfit.
