About this project

Basically, I'd like to make a wheel of cheese and I want you to be involved and to get some (hopefully! ;) delicious cheese for your face.

I've invested a significant amount of time and money into my cheesemaking craft and I'm excited to offer some up to you!

My budget for a 2lb wheel of Gouda:

Local Milk ~$14

Cultures & Renent: ~$15

A day of cheese making activity (it usually takes about 6+ hours of attention to make a wheel of cheese!)

All in all, I think its a pretty good deal and if this works out, I'll be doing more in the future.

THANKS FOR SUPPORTING ME!

Risks and challenges

Barring any substantial natural disaster or milk shortages, the cheese should take about 2-3 months to age. When it is just right it will be delivered/picked up (in nola) or shipped (if you're at the appropriate funding level)

I'll be making the cheese in the next week or so -- this puts the ultimate delivery date around October.
