ISO recipe for homemade cheese.

If anyone makes their own cheese will you please share your recipe and tips. I would like to try and make my own. If you don't want to share will you point me in the right direction to find a good recipe?

I dabbled around with cheese making a while back, but decided I already had too many hobbies. It didn't seem all that difficult, though.

All you need is a great book and cheese making supplies.

A great book (Ricki Carroll is the cheesemaking queen):

There are TONS of sites on cheesemaking, as well as books. We found a place where you can get raw milk (although it is labeled for non-human consumption, pfffft) and made mozzarella, ricotta and mascarpone. It wasn't difficult, though I cooked the first batch of moz too long and it didn't have that really soft texture we wanted. The ricotta and mascarpone were great though. Used the mascarpone to make the best brownies we've ever had in our lives.

Had made some ricotta long ago using just lemon juice and store-bought milk. It was pretty easy too though I have to say the non-pasturized milk made a better end product and formed the curd better.

Thanks everyone. This should keep me busy this winter. I think I can get raw milk. There is a dairy up the road from me.
