There is actual cheese at Alemar Cheese. My make today went really well. Even though it was a thirteen hour day, I felt energized throughout, especially once the cheese made it into the molds. I plan to post a full description of the cheesemaking process, but not tonight. After I finished cleaning up, I spent a few moments just staring at the end result of something I’ve been working towards for almost a year. Cheese is not the most attractive looking stuff right out of the vat, but you coulda fooled me. It was beautiful.

There is still no guarantee that the cheese will be great, but so far I’m confident. For a long time now, people will ask what I’m up to, and I’ll launch into a lengthy bit about how I’m starting this cheese business and so on. Tomorrow, if anyone asks what I do, I’ll simply look them dead in the eye and say “I’m a cheesemaker”. Have a great night…
