Top is still crowning every time I flip it, which is daily.  Hopefully the sides will start bulging also.  Looking good.

I was rather concerned about the swelling as the Jarlsberg, behind it, didn't swell as much as expected but both seem to be coming along nicely now.  Now I'll know what to expect the next time I make some. ;D

I'm thinking I will add a little more PS in my next Swiss make to get more swelling going on.
 this one is looking good Al ^-^

Thanks buddy. Yeah, I think a teaspoon for 4 gallons of milk might be the ticket.

Well the crowning is getting better, and higher.  Even my Jarlsberg is swelling in its wax. ;D

I wonder if the vacumn will help the internal gases expand.
