I used Kazu. Gas-producer? Not so much.

Great looking texture and body, wow.
Cut wheel pix show that rind has grown nicely.
Good job Boofer !

Yes, I guess they are gas holes. Could be a combination of other components of PLA though.

Well I had a desire for some hard cheese for breakfast this morning. I had two candidates in mind and decided on this winner.

I sliced off the rind since it's not really my favorite in an aged cheese like this. It was a little darker than earlier pics show it. It is aging very comfortably and complemented the apple nicely. I would like to repeat this with some summer milk again. Excellent texture and flavor. The salt level also shows a light touch (10 hours brine-time) which makes it very edible.

Kudos again. One of my favorite standbys to make. That looks fantastic. Milk right now around here is really high quality due to the grass, can create some nuanced and exceptional makes.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.

Three months.
