Making Cheese?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm printing some "how-to" descriptions for things to make. I found something online about how to make butter with just some heavy cream and a jar...very helpful.

 

But, I'm looking for some info about making cheese without electricity. If you do this, or know how, can you put your list of ingredients and materials here along with your process and how long (approximately) each stage should take?

 

I was looking elsewhere online and while I came across a lot of info from people who make their own cheese - all the ones I read used the aid of electricity.

 

Thanks!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheese#Production.......this has the basics

 

or http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/Cheese98.htm

 

for a bigger batch.... http://biology.clc.uc.edu/fankhauser/cheese/cheese_5_gallons/cheese_5gal_00.htm

 

 

as far as not using electricity a nice hard wood coal bed is easy enough to use.......for temp control just raise or lower the pot.

HERE IS SOME THINGS i HAVE FOUND

 

PRINT AND READ THROUGHLY it is easy but you need to know and understand before you start

 

some Items you will need

 

stainless steel bowls & pots of different sizes utensils whisks spoons

cheese cloth and I use muslin cheapest you can find white

wood spoons different sizes and spatulas I have both wood and bamboo.

thermometers you need a few and keep them Marked in a protective PVC pipe with some cotton padding

 

well man used wood heat he was visual he looked for the milk to start to bubble just before boiling or simmering

We have Thermometers and stainless steel and bleach for cleaning as sanitation is PARAMOUNT !

you will need Pyrex / heat proof glass bowls and measuring cups of Pyrex to make some chemicals.

Certain chemicals must be had on hand because they are not going to be common when TSHTF or is going to fall

out of the sky when the sh*t hits the fan....

hey snake, have you ever made your own vinegar? i have a batch brewing out of some wine i made a couple of years back. i checked it after a year and a half but thought the acidity was still a little low, so i added a bit more sugar to restart the process. i was wondering if my reasoning in doing that was sound. what do you think?

 

we keep 5 gallons of white vinegar and a couple of apple cider vinegar too.

well that is one but I tire of only one kind and it does not store well like the hard cheeses and that is why

many cheeses have been made to beat hunger and starvation certain cheeses can last up to 15 years

so during hardship and drought whatever there is a source of food this is also why the Italians

and others made a science out of pickling drying salting aging and making long term storage calories

there was a ham recently sold was 101 years old in Scotland salted dried fish have been found

hundreds of years old still edible.

sausage was made to different specifications for cold climates and warm climates

 

here is a link

these are sustainable less to no waste we must learn these again if what many of us fear a financial problem

that lasts years so when you have meat milk fish it is not a hog it all and starve a week later food comes in waves and seasons there are going to be times of plenty and times of lack if we are not taking this subject seriously we may as well just be in a fu@kin' chat room how r u blah blah bullsh*t

 

I give one liners and make some off remarks and try to keep it light but sometimes we need to dig deep

and learn how our forefathers survived in ancient times making fire with 2 sticks is real neat but it will not fill your belly nor improve your health binge eating is not healthy either.

 

it may seem trivial pissing time away in this forum some people weather they know it now or not

only have X amount of time to get this information and make a hard copy in the future the internet may be

still here but if you cannot afford it and are setting there with a whole moose what the hell are you going to do about it turn it all into jerky that has a shelf life of 3 to 6 months

 

there is so much to learn and not only knowledge but equipment to accumulate that are cheap and easy

to find but as I went to the next town over I noticed more empty shops how long do you think you got.

I see some good information but the depth of information is not enough to sustain a person

chemical are not going to fall out of the sky in the thousands of years much of these secrets

where held by families that is what made them rich and sustained them now it is at your finger tips

and many of you piss away the time you have to learn and package the information.

for your families and yourself can not only survive but make a new better life.

 

in the past families killed to retain secrets to make chemicals and foods

people worked their whole life to gather the information and process

and then ran for their life to other countries to start a new life.

I do not know where some of you learned history but my advice is to ask for your money back,

you got cheated and handed a line of crap history is a bloody cruel destructive and full of war

murder and greed and those are the corner stones of our fragile society only the last 100 years

has been easy compared to the thousands of years of depravity and darkness before.

 

and lemons do not grow in northern climates without a lot of help lemon juice is only natural citric acid

so there are numerous juices that would give you the acidity to make this cheese

not to mention a lot of whey is made this can be processed and used also.

 

waste not want not. learn now or die later your choice.
