Cheese is made from pouring buckets of milk into Cheese Molds

In the newer version for Minecraft 1.12.2 if you shift + right click on the filled cheese mold it will tell you the percent that the cheese has aged. The milk will turn a light or darker shade of yellow when it hits 100%, meaning that it's ready to collect. Once you right click the mold it will put the cheese in your inventory if the cheese is fully ready to be harvested. You cannot put milk from the vanilla cows in the molds.
