Thanks H-K-J, After the train wreck, trying to bring it out as one lump of curd, stuff went everywhere, total loss, I started over from scratch and followed my recipe I posted. Not sure why the curd didn't knit tightly but I suspect it was the huge lumps of curd I was putting into the mold. At any rate we'll see how it turns out.
I'll keep posting pics as it progresses. I'm really not all that sure that the p candidum doesn't just cover the holes.
rosawoodsii I sprinkled it onto the layers as you are supposed to according to the recipes I read. I suspect if you just mix it in it might interfere with the p candidum and geo. Not sure, just guessing.
