Yesterday, I picked up my new cheese vat, a 17 quart counter top roaster. So far it has performed well and I am happy with it. I have started to make a Gouda for my mother. This one was made with 8 litres of Homogenized Milk and a pint of Half and Half.
It turned out not to be a pretty cheese, but I have had time to post pictures of the new Vat.
This is it with my high tech thermometer holder.
Little Miss Muffet would have to sit on her Tuffet a long time before I give up these curds and whey
