Prepare gelatin by sprinkling gelatin over water in a small dish. The gelatin will set up in a couple of minutes. Grate 12 ounces Colby cheese. In either a heavy duty mixer or food processor add grated Colby cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, and dry milk powder. Heat 2/3 cup of milk until just below a scald add gelatin to milk and whisk gelatin in until it has dissolved completely. Pour warm milk into either a heavy duty mixer or food processor. Process cheese until smooth. Line a small loaf pan with plastic wrap. Pour cheese into loaf pan. Cover the top with plastic wrap. Place cheese in refrigerator and allow to gel. It will take about 3 hours for the cheese to set up. This makes 1 one pound loaf of cheese.
