    I bought this kit a few years ago and its still going strong. Absolutely love it. The instructions are clear and everything was there that I needed to get going. I love it when someone asks "what kind of cheese is this?" and I can tell them its my very own.

    I bought this kit as a home experiment. We had the soft cheese kit already and had sadly never used it. Our first cheese was produced on the weekend it arrived. The instructions were absolutely spot on. The cheese is now wrapped in larded cheese cloth. A sneaky slice was taken and the results were very satisfying.

    If you want to have a go at cheesemaking, this kit is an amazing introduction. I doubt we will upgrade much of anything in there as it has all you need.

    A slight cheat is to use a temperature controlled water bath for heating the milk and creating the curds. You may need to look online for sous vide cheese making ideas. This take out the guess work in getting the milk to 32c and then upwards for the finishing of the curds.

    Just bought this kit and its perfect already made my first cheddar type cheese and ready for the next. Just have to remember to stager them. Can’t recommend enough.

    Bought this kit for my Father as a new hobby for his retirement. The kit is very good and has everything you need to get started. Found a local diary (we live in the heart of Stilton Country so wasn’t hard to find) which sells fresh raw milk by the litre and started our first cheddar which is now maturing nicely in an improvised cave. Since then I have made our own simple curd cutter and invested in a soup kettle which makes the perfect bain marie keeping a constant 32C and slow rise to 38C for cooking the curds. 2 top tips I can give at this stage, 1: make sure everything you use or is nearby is clean and sterile 2: allow plenty of time as this is a process that cannot be rushed. I hope you all enjoy the art of making cheese as much as we do.

    Great kit! Provides you with everything you need to make cheese! Simple instructions for us newbies, so my first attempt turned out fairly well, much to my surprise!!! A few weeks of practice and I’m now producing a lovely creamy cheese which is far nicer than what you can buy in the shops, even my co-workers agree, they keep asking me to make more!
