I have completed my first attempt at making blue cheese and followed my recipe as close as possible. According to the recipe the cheese was ready to be tasted yesterday. When I opened the wrapping I was both disappointed and baffled at the result. With this post I was hoping that someone could be able to point out what I may have done wrong.
The cheese developed a blue/green mold according to the time schedule.
I poked holes through it as explained (should have made many more holes).
I wrapped it in the cheese wrapping as the recipe said.
Now the outside of the cheese has both blue/green and white mold. Around the edges, inside the outer "crust" the cheese is liquid. When I cut through it the texture is like a Roquefort throughout (except the edges). The cheese looks like ice cream with a green coating
