Participants will learn to select the right quality milk, discern what kinds of milk are appropriate for each type of cheese, and choose what kind of bacteria to use as a starter. We'll cover as many cheeses as possible during each workshop period. Participants in workshop A will be given samples of soft cheese to take home and practice aging. This may or may not be possible for workshop B and C, because of production size limitations in the cheese room. Cliff invites participants wanting to learn more about working with the milk of their own animals to bring 2 gallons of milk to make into cheese.
