Yep, just a few more steps than yogurt sounds about right!  Feta requires a few additional ingredients you can only get from a cheesemaking supplier (culture, calcium chloride) and requires more temperature control over the milk.  You need to mold it then brine it and it's not ready for a few days.

I can't believe I missed this post! MW taught me how to make cheese, too. It was a fun process and delicious! Go MW!  Kiss

I have been wanting to make mozzarella for a long time and considered some expensive kits.  I love all your pictures and I think this tutorial is just the push I need to finally make some cheese!!

Thanks so much you guys.  I hope I've taken a bit of the mystery out of the process.

I saw a program on TV ("How They Do It" maybe) about making cheese and it looked soooooo complicated - but your awesome tutorial has made me think twice - I'm going out tomorrow and find rennet and citric acid.  THANKS for the inspiration!! Huh Huh

Yay!  I've actually taken a commercial cheesemaking workshop and it can get very scientific and complicated.  I like simple!
