Colby cheese Why did i do it!

I have just taken my first wheel of Colby Cheese from the press and it is now floating in it's brine bath. What a lot of work that cheese is. If I ever have a moment of madness and say I'm going to make it again someone Please Stop me. I started making it yesterday at 2:00 and finished pressing it at 8:00am today. Now it has to be brined for 8 hours and then air dryed for 2 days then waxed. And I DON'T EVEN EAT CHEESE!
I think i'll stick with Farmhouse Cheddar Oh and I did just make a Carphillly for Christmas.

Re: Colby cheese Why did i do it!

I really enjoy making it. It's just sometimes I take on bigger projects than I think. Yesterday I had bread rising, cheese doing it's thing and dinner in the oven. One thing too many I think in hindsight.
It always make me laugh when people ask if I get bored living in the country. :funny: I haven't got time to get bored.

Your welcome, I wouldn't say it if I didn't enjoy it :eat:

Thanks, yes I am having a good visit, needed the time to "decompress" as my sister calls it.  I will say hi to Mum from you for sure.  I have had my fill of clothes shopping but the deals where so good, so am coming home with a FULL suitcase.

Re: Colby cheese Why did i do it!

You make good cheese Lynn, but that is a lot of work for something that you don't even enjoy eating.  I hope John appreciates it too.  I'm sure your Grand-sons will enjoy it!    :eat:

Re: Colby cheese Why did i do it!

Actually I am making it for Christmas so you will get to sample some when you visit. Paula I will be sure to have Fromage Blanc with Herbs on the menu.
Glad you're having a good trip, the weather here today is awful, freezing rain and blowing a gale.

Can't wait :excited:

Weather has been great here, in the low 70's F and sunny.  So I am NOT looking forward to the yuk back home.  Wonder if Mark would miss me :whistle:
