The Penn State Cheese Tracking System is designed to help small-scale cheesemakers track the quality and consistency of their cheese. By defining and monitoring measurable parameters, cheesemakers can understand how variation in raw materials and processes can impact the sensory quality of their cheese and us this information ato djust their practices to consistently make better cheese and troubleshoot problems. The Penn State Extension Cheese Tracking System consists of 2 instruction guides and 17 Word and Excel documents that can be customized to record, track, and evaluate data for their milk composition, cheesemaking processes, post-make day processes, cheese chemical composition, and cheese sensory characteristics. The system is available as a free package of downloadable files from the Penn State Extension website (http://extension.psu.edu). This workbook is part of the Cheese Tracking Data Summary component, which is a checklist for the convenience of the cheesemaker to provide a quick overview of the data that has been recorded for each cheese.
