    Lightbulb Cheese making and dairy production course in Irene, Pretoria, South Africa

    Last week I was attending a cheese making and dairy production course in Irene, which is South of Pretoria. It's on the Agricultural research council premises on their farm there.

    The course included the theory on milk, enzymes and milk cultures / bacteria used in cheese and yogurt making. But we mostly did do practical runs for making halloumi, ricotta, feta, amasi and yogurt. In the factory they did make cheddar cheese in the big mechanized cheese vats there.



    Some Theory in the class.


    At the practicals in the lab kitchen.


    The curd is getting ready for further processing


    Curd, but not yet separated from the whey.


    separation is getting visible.


    Separated curd getting ready to be pressed.


    Look into the factory cheese vat, where they made cheddar.


    We also separted some ricotta from the whey.


    Preparing some halloumi cheese to be packed.


    Putting feta sticks into containers with brine.


    Adding a culture. Not sure if it is the yogurt or the amasi.

    We used cows milk for the course. But they also had some goats on the research farm (small stock division):
