I didn't mark the date on this one, but I think it was right around New Year's
Day. I looked at several recipes and finally made a combination. I used one gallon raw goat milk, which is pretty high in solids this late in lactation and from does that I'm drying off. I sprinkled the P. Roqueforti over the curds in the middle this time instead of adding it to the milk. The P. candidum is growing vigorously, and I've patted it down a couple of times already so that it doesn't take off and run away with the cheese. I poked holes around the middle a few days ago and today reopened them. It's coming along, and I'm curious to see how this one turns out. Definitely much different from my last make.
I wonder, though,, should I be poking holes on the top and bottom as well as on the sides?
