Following Linuxboy's directions for making a Stilton type blue cheese, I began this make the day before Thanksgiving...and then got sidetracked and it stayed in the mold much much too long (like, until Friday morning) so it lacks the appearance of other stilton makes posted...I was rather surprised by the knit, since I have, in the past, had trouble with making a smooth knit and here I achieved it totally by accident.
Here is the recipe: http://www.wacheese.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=71:stilton-approximation-howto&catid=38:bloomy-rind-and-blue&Itemid=58
For make notes, I followed the directions as best I could considering I started off without a pH meter, and then almost immediately into the make my digital thermometer decided that room temp was around 140F...
Sooooo....not sure how closely I followed the make directions since I had to determine some of the temps mainly by feel and pH schedules by the seat of my pants.
At any rate, I have a cheese...as well as a new thermometer and soon a new pH meter. Quite the week lol
