Up until now, I’ve shown you many of my successful cheeses, but what about the Cheese Making failures?
Well, in this video I show you many of the cheeses that didn’t make it to the YouTube channel. I am still working to perfect some of these cheeses and hope to bring a video tutorial about them soon.
As you can see, some of them are not pretty. However, as with any hobby or skill, it is the mistakes we make that helps us to learn.
Just so you know, I taste every single cheese that I make, good or bad. That way I have some idea of what may have gone wrong i.e. too acidic, no acid development, not enough salt.
Even when they are covered in mould, I still try the cheese because you never know if you’ve invented a new type that you may want to replicate.
That is why it is also important to keep notes during the cheese making session.
This is something that I didn’t do early on in my cheese making obsession, but I definitely do now. I take meticulous notes on ingredient amounts, actual temperatures, timings, and pressures. It helps me to be able to create the same style of cheese next time.
So, I believe that one person’s cheese making failures are another’s success. That’s why I share all this cheesy knowledge with you, all for free!
