I've taught cheesemaking since 2004, run a small goat milk dairy for 22 years in my urban St. Louis backyard, and I've learned cheese making at the side of some of the finest cheesemakers there are. I convey their knowledge to you.

I make this complex process simple and you will definitely get all your questions answered. Whether you're a beginner or you've made lots of cheese already, you will find out exactly why the books you've been learning from don't work, and how simple it will be for you to make your cheese taste delicious.

You'll have fun meeting other people who want to get their hands into this interesting craft. You'll learn a full array of accurate traditional and professional cheese making techniques, for both goat milk and cow milk, and go home ready to make all your favorite, using the complete direction packet you will receive.

You'll use all your senses to observe the changing textures and aromas which go along with the scientific explanations. You'll learn the different "clean breaks" for different kinds of cheese, find out why correct milk cooling entirely affects the flavor and success of your cheese, see and feel the correct curd texture at draining, and understand how to monitor and control acidity and pH, moisture, temperature, and salt, in order to create consistently delicious cheeses.

Space is limited so register now. Registration, more photos, and details, are my OTHER website :

COMMENTS FROM PARTICIPANTS "I took your cheese making classes around the end of last year. I have worked my way through the booklet and have tried it all. I am happy to say, I learned more in 2 days with you than I have throughout my entire experience, including an internship. Bravo to you for teaching the science, the how, when, why and not just handing out recipes. I look forward to your book, please let me know when that is available, as I feel it will be an asset to anyone interested in learning about and making cheese. Thank you so much !!"

So far I have taken 2 cheese making classes and plan on taking more! Great instructor and if you want to learn how to make cheese go for these. You can't go wrong.

I had never taken a cheesemaking class before signing up for one of Merryl Winstein's weekend marathons: two days of nothing but cheese. I have, however, attended workshops in other fields I knew little or nothing about.... [more]

I attended Merryl's half day cheesemaking class. She helped me with supplies and answered my many questions in the weeks to follow. Yesterday I made mozzarella, feta, fromage blanc and ricotta all by myself.... [more]
