Or maybe you guys are considering the time invested?

But then I would spend all my money at the Red Lion, or Fast Eddies on N. Division. Damn, I miss the fry bread and honey. Plus I miss Wheels at the Red Lion. I digress.
I get about a pound of mozzerella from a gallon of milk. Same with paneer. I've not done any cottage cheese but you may get a bit more with the whey left in it. The thing is, if you could buy bulk milk and produce hundreds of pounds the savings would show.
