No. But I'm experimenting with making my own cheese to go with it.

I don't make wine, but find this board interesting, from time to time:
http://boards.fool.com/the-wine-cellar-112935.aspx?mid=29849...

It tends to get pretty low traffic, but I think a few knowledgeable participants keep an eye on new posts to the board that may show up on their TMF Favorite boards page.

I'm one of the 2 (so far) teetotalers in the poll, but I once considered making my own cheese, do you have a procedure you're able to share? As I recall you need 'rennet'.

(btw, with a name like 'rosewine' I would've thought you would've been on board with the wine-making...)

I picked up a book* at the library on cheese making and tried a recipe for Queso Blanco to start. No rennet, just milk, vinegar and salt for my initial attempt. I'm planning to try Mozarella next, probably next week. If I recall, you are vegetarian and there is vegetarian rennet. There's a shop near my former employer that sells cheesemaking supplies. I have a friend who has made some outstanding aged cheeses and I want to try that but figured I should start with something that is ready to eat right away to see if it's something I want to keep doing.

I don't see any reason to make wine when there are so many excellent local wines available. Of course, with our cellar what it is, if I drank a bottle a day it would take about 10 years to run out.

*Artisan Cheesemaking at Home by Mary Karlin. Good reading, even if you don't want to make cheese yourself.

For paneer (essentially ricotta) all you need is milk and an acid (I use lemon juice, but you can use vinegar). I make it from time to time. Other kinds of cheese require more specialized ingredients.
