Just What is Solar Powered Cheese?

In looking to make the most efficient creamery possible, we researched all the energy forms and solar seemed to be the most useful option for us. Making cheese takes a LOT of hot water – why not use the sun for heat? As the project went on, the question morphed into – why not pasteurize with solar hot water? Fabulous idea BUT we haven’t found anyone else doing it here in the United States. So, armed with desire, a huge solar thermal array, relatively no practical knowledge and little outside assistance, the modifications began to create a solar based pasteurization system.
