I have had some hiccups. I lost my first small batch of test-cheeses to slip skin, but the two batches I am currently aging seem to be coming along nicely. I also have a couple of cloth bound/lard sealed cheddars aging away. Hopefully everything turns out well.
I don't know why I am so prone to these maniacal quests to institute home production of diverse food stuffs... All I have to say is god bless my wife for humoring all of my projects (sorry honey for the rather large curd spill of the other night).
