I made a sort of gouda today, which I dry salted as opposed to brine. Would I do my first wash tomorrow? I don't have wood shelves, just the sacrilege plastic racks, in a mini wine fridge, can I try this anyway? I have a wooden plank I could use, I think it is pine, should I try that on top of the fridge shelf? I want to wash with beer, is there a ratio of beer to water to salt? I use a fingernail brush for my cheeses, will that work? I don't have any b.kinsman to add to my wash, and don't know if I have any naturally present, will this work anyway?
Sorry for all the questions, especially if they should be obvious, or have already been answered.
