Ingrid, I started making cheese for the first time this year.  I started off with a vinegar cheese, then made Haloumi, Ricotta and Feta, Camembert is next to try.  I simply bought a Mad Millie cheese kit.  It comes with everything you need except the cheese and a large pot.  Otherwise watch some demonstrations on YouTube.  It really is quite simple.  Start with the easy cheeses and then work your way up to cheeses that require a press and storage.

Wow Cheese making is really taking off isn't that fantastic!

So busy I haven't had time this month to put down another cheddar, but did make feta and camembert.

I am taking regular classes so check my website for regular updates .

About classes on line Tui that's a thought! Mad Millie does have you tube clips but there is something about what you learn at a class. Many of my mozzarella class participants have tried at home, watched you tube and still failed. It was the class that made the difference. Maybe skype would be better?

Still waiting for our goats to kid and cows to calve, so no raw milk available for cheesemaking yet.  Made Gouda and goat-milk feta last Summer.  Yum!

Do you know of anyone holding any lessons/classes in the Marlborough region?  I live in Kaikoura.

Also, does anyone know some tips on milking sheep and goats?

Also, Lisa.  Are you interested to hold any online lessons ie/ you tube etc?

Just started making cheese with a Millie Italian kit. Great fun. Where do I go now? I love Cheeeese!!

thanks Lisa.  Mad Millie sells stuff here in Hamilton and I guess that would be a starter, but I would be interested in whatever you have to do you deliver? I live in Raglan, so a bit off the beaten track

Hi Ingrid great to have a budding cheesemaker on board.

A class is a great start I run classes in Auckland so may not work for you.

There are many things you can buy but really to get started all you need is a thermometre and butter muslin, and a colander. You don't even need a stove to make cheese.

I sell cultures and equipment if you are interested but there are many things you may have around the house that can be used without purchasing lots of equipment, just try some simple cheeses and let this group know how you got on.

starting from scratch, the concept of making my own cheese appeals.  I have access to raw milk but am unsure of the right equipment I need to buy to get started....any ideas out there?
