Kudos, Jeff! Let's all raise a cup for the washed rind cheeses! :)

A cheese for your 7-year-old-pleasing efforts.

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine,'s all good.

Indeed, it's 5:29 here now! :)

This has turned out very nice.  It has ripened to the centre, and the paste is soft, though not runny or gooey.  The rind, after washing off the linens, is edible.  The flavour is definately b.linens cheese, strong but not overpowering, so probably mid-level. Meaning, I think if this was left to ripen another month is would be quite challenging, and if cut into a few weeks ago it would be quite mild and a good intro cheese for washed rinds.

P.S.  My 7 year old daughter really likes it!  She said it was my best cheese ever.  :)

That looks fantastic! Recipe is going into the queue.

Thanks all!
