Years ago I contacted the American Cheese Society to see if I could become a member. At the time the only option open to me was to become a “Cheese Enthusiast” member, now flash forward several years and I am now a full “Industry” member and I attended my first conference and brought home an award for one of my cheeses.
It has been well over a month since I last posted and that was about our now completed Kickstarter Campaign, more on that later, but I have some updates about what I have done the last month or so. One of which is crossing off a cheese that is on my list of must try’s. (more…)
It has been almost a month since I last posted something. What can I say, life has been hectic and there hasn’t been much to report on the cheese front. Well other than we are days away from the Inaugural Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Awards, which I will be attending (more on that later). I do have a few updates on some cheeses that are in progress.
First off I want to apologize for not posting over the past couple of weeks. I have been extremely busy with my day job, cheesemaking classes, The Canadian Amateur Cheesemaking Awards and on top of that I slipped and fell of my steps a couple of weeks ago and it finally does not hurt to sit. Enough of that, it is time to talk about cheese, and more specifically the third version of Josef.
This was a double batch. Each pot had 16 litres of milk.
I have been tempted to take the next few weeks off from writing and concentrate on Family and personal cheese making, but I have some pictures that I wanted to share. They from a Yukon Raft tasting, but of two of “The Big 3” cheese that I made this year. The Clothbound Cheddar and Josef.

I have meant to give an update on my second Josef for a while, things have gotten in the way. Work, illness, writer’s block and Blue Cheese. Now with this Josef reaching 4 months it was time to update you on its progress
Twice the size of the last one and twice the colour on the rind
