Thanks Boofer and Jeff.
Yes, I plan to vac pack half the wheel and age it for another 4 weeks to assess the difference.
I'm very pleased with the solid paste, first time I have used my simple press and the result exceeded my expectations. The paste has a slightly rubbery texture, similar to some Swiss styles, or even Jarlsberg. The flavour was quite surprising. I was expecting a much milder, sweeter flavour, but this one has a good, rich cheese taste with that hint of bite at the finish. I can only liken the bite to that lovely aged cheddar bite, without the same depth of flavour.
Thanks for all the recommendations to try this cheese, it really is a great cheese to play with and develop some techniques for hard cheese making.
And thanks for the cheese Jeff!
