The Universal Cheesemaking Base Kit Contains all the reusable equipment, supplies, and instructions you will need for every new batch of cheese. When this base kit is paired with one or more of our Specialty Cheese Kits and the appropriate quantity of milk, you will be fully prepared to make several batches of any given style of cheese. Keep expanding your cheesemaking repertoire by adding on Specialty Kits as you master each style. The included book, Artisan Cheesemaking at Home, by Sonoma County local, Mary Karlin, is our favorite book on making cheese and even contains recipes provided by staff of The Beverage People! If you're whey serious about making some curd, we suggest purchasing this kit with the Specialty Cheese Kit for Fresh Chevre for the ultimate starter package. Note: A Cheese Press is not included and will be needed for the Specialty Cheese Kit for Hard Cheese. Also consider enrollment in one of our Upcoming Cheese Classes where we'll help take those cheesemaking skills to the next level.
Note: This is not a stand-alone cheese kit, but a base for a variety of cheese making when you add one or more of our Specialty Cheese Kits, which we have for the following styles of cheese:
