There are thousands of types of cheese, but none are bitter.

Hai! I think this is perhaps a common problem in cheese homemade production.

Bitter Cheese

This is normally caused by two things: Either the cheese was not drained enough, or the cheese was not salted enough. Add a little extra salt, stir, and try to get some more whey out. If you happen to have a cheese press, give it a shot here. Wrap your cheese (even if it's soft) in a cheesecloth and press at 10 pounds of pressure for 15 minutes. Then taste again.

Cheese can also become too bitter with age. If you made ricotta three weeks ago and it tastes bitter, it's probably better just to discard it.

From the article: Troubleshooting Homemade Cheese - Cultures for Health

I hope it helps.

The Indonesian pallet is not tuned in to the subtleties of cheese. It is not a common food here. You should have seen the look on my wife's face the first time she ate gorgonzola. Bahahaha.

Totally agree.. I lived in Jakarta for a year and no one i met ate any cheese at all, or even any dairy foods..

Maybe the cheese is spoiled/contaminated, better avoid eating bitter cheese.
