Do you mean a lactic or semi lactic bloomy with ash cover, an Italian style with ash cover, or a morbier style with ash middle?

We recently made an ashed camembert-style cheese.
There's so many options with ash!

I make very simple but tasty cheese. I would be haapy to get goats' milk, but cow's is good too.
It's maybe not a 'proffesional' style, but you can try, hope you'll like it.

8 l full cream cow's milk
1/3 tsp aromatic culture
2-3 drops G. candidum
1/8 tsp P.candidum
1/8 tsp rennet

1. Warm milk to +32*C
2. Add culture and molds, let rehidrate for 2-3 minutes, that stir
3. Add rennet (dissolved in cold water), stir
4. Cover the pot and leave for 18-20 h at warm place, until curd forms.
5. Using skimmer take small bits of curd and place directly into the moulds (I use pyramid) and let drain. You can use any other moulds or plastic cups, but make sure it has many small drainage holes.
6. When cheeses are ready to unmold, put them on rack for drying and salt on all surfaces After 5-6 h spray with P.Candidum.
7. The next day dust them with thion layer of ash and here the ripening starts - put them in ripening box / cave. Turn daily.
On 4-5 day white mold starts to grow through ash. Let ripen form 3-4 weeks at +8*C an RH 90%.
