How to Use

To make cheese it is first necessary to learn recipes from your faction center. Currently each faction center will teach 2 of the four known recipes. It is not currently known if it is possible to share recipes out of your faction (not a teachable technology).

Halumi Y N N
Istanboly N N Y
Mish N Y N

Creameries can be set with a recipe much like kettles. If you are in a faction without access to a particular recipe have a friendly who knows the cheese you want stop by and configure your creamery to process your desired type the next time you use it.
