    Excellent book on making dairy products.

    The Complete Guide to Making Cheese, Butter, and Yogurt at Home is written by Richard Helweg. Helweg spent several months making cheese, butter, and yogurt at home, so much of the knowledge contained in this book was tested first hand. The language in the book is simple and easy to understand. One of the best things about this book is that it gives clear instructions on the kinds of products and equipment that are necessary for making butter, cheese, and yogurt. Many different recipes of cheese are included in the book, as well as many yogurt and butter recipes. As a bonus, there are also many recipes for other products, such as buttermilk, pancakes, sour cream, and more. Unfortunately, this book is not much longer than 300 pages. It is hard to cram everything about making three such distinct products into only 100 pages each. For this reason, saying the book has everything you need to know about making butter, yogurt, and cheese cannot be true. None of the information in the book goes past the beginning level. Beginners will find themselves occupied for months completing the recipes in the book. The book even outlines different ways to make each product. This book receives 4 out of 5 stars.

The author has done a marvelous job of writing this book. He explains the use of every complicated ingredient. Along with the main recipes, he has slipped in other recipes we may later find useful.
