    Did my first cheese today. Sharp cheddar and pepper jack. It was a small batch. Smoked for 3 hours with cherry pellets. First time using the amnst and completely love it. Still have yet to use the amnps I got for Christmas as well. Will post more pictures next time was to excited today to think of taking pictures haha. Now to let it rest 3 weeks and give it a taste.

    Oh, the loooong dreaded wait. Especially the first batch. My first batch I stuck it in the bottom drawer of the fridge, and put a towel over it.

    Now I've got a project fridge. Outta sight outta mind.

    I've been thinking about getting a mini fridge. Especially since there will be more projects with cold smoking going on.

    Good lookin cheese! Definitely a full size fridge, you'd be surprised how much room a few blocks of cheese take up.

    Thank you Xray. I'm hoping that for a while a mini will work for me. So excited to have more projects

    The more fridges you have the more you need. I have 3 fridges & 1 freezer. I also have a generator in case the power goes out in a hurricane. Don't want to loose all that meat & cheese.
