They just look so nice. I'm looking forward to watch them as they age. I hope that you share some pictures...

I have to give you a cheese for making these special cheeses!

Thanks for the cheese buddy!!  They seemed like a cool project to take on.  You can't find a recipe for them anywhere so I'm making a LOT of assumptions but I think I'll end up with some good cheese regardless. Always like a challenge.  ;D  Raclette anyone?? LOL

Did the morning flip, nothing really to dry.  My cave is right about 80-85 RH and that's where I like to keep it.  No change in anything but I really don't expect to see anything for at least 5 days.  Then I may see some PC growth.  This pic shows the teardrop shape I ended up with.  I should still be able to box them when the time comes as they should soften up.  Besides, they aren't really supposed to fit in the box.  You're supposed to force them in, really.  Watch...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hJlA53NhNU
