In making an effort to look past the stuff I have no handle on, I'm going to instead celebrate that which I'm gaining ground. Butter. I used to skim quite a bit milk during my efforts to collect the cream. Now, I have quart jars with less than an 1/8 of an inch of milk. All cream. And with that I've been making ~2 pounds of butter a week. I tell you...fresh butter is good stuff! And the cheese. I have a much better handle on the softer cheese in particular. I just ordered more rennet, which means this coming weekend I will have turned 120 gallons of hand milk milk into cheese since August. How about that?
