Ive been making cheese from the Basic hard cheese recipe. I buy a quart of buttermilk and freeze it in ice cube trays, and thaw them out as I need them to inoculate the milk. I use the cheapest store brand whole milk. The second time the curds didn't come out normal, I discovered one shouldn't use ultra-pasteurized milk. I bought some rennet from New England Cheese Making Supplies, but when I can find some vegetable rennet, I want to try it.

After I found out 'cheddar' is a verb, I started doing it (with the batch that you sampled) with the curds. It takes place between draining the whey and pressing the curds.

I use an old coffee can to press my cheese. I'm looking for  large pvc  fitting to replace the can. I knocked together a board with an upright secured to one end, at the top of which bolted a long horizontal which pivots. I made a follower to fit the can. I put the can with curds and follower (on a plastic coffee can cover with a drain hole) close to the pivot end with a stick pushing the follower and  a gallon of water on the far end getting about a three to one advantage.

I thought it was a town in England.  ;D

I've seen that page you linked, before. I need to give it a try. Everyone loves it when I make butter.

Indeed. So much of cooking involves making emulsions. Making butter means breaking an emulsion.

Turns out butter is surprisingly easy to make.

True story: my elementary school was having "frontier week," to teach us about frontier life, and decided they would have us kids make butter.  So they handed us those cardboard cubes of milk that they always had in the lunchrooms and told us to shake them, to make butter.  Oh, and to make it healthier, they gave us skim milk.  I refused, pointing out that homogenized, skim milk was not going to turn into butter, no matter how much shaking was supplied.  They told my parents I was being "a disruptive influence."  If that happened these days, I'm sure they would have tried to diagnose me with something...
