I am one of those types of people that likes to learn new things.  One of those new things I wanted to try was making cheese.   I have goat’s, so I bred them, to a sannen buck that had excellent milking lines and started milking as soon as I was able.   For the first week after the babies were born you can’t use the milk because it has colostrum in it.  I saved the colostrum and froze it for emergencies and gave the cat’s the rest.   Once the week was up, I saved it in the freezer and kept adding to it.  I ended up with 5 containers of various sizes filled with milk.  After I defrosted them, I had 18 3/4 cups of milk, or just over 1 gallon of milk.  I then put this on the stove so that I could pasteurize the milk, at 145F for 30 mins and then your supposed to cool it to 40 degrees.   Tomorrow I will be making the Feta cheese.
