Waxing and humidity
« on: March 06, 2013, 01:09:59 PM »
Hi,

I wonder if anyone can answer this question please.

I have recently started making cheese and bought a wine fridge to use as a cave. I have it set up at the correct temperature and I can control humidity reasonably well by putting a container of water inside.  My question is - is humidity relevant if I am waxing my cheeses?

I imagine temperature is still important but, if the cheese is sealed in wax, will it be affected by humidity?

Does anyone know the answer?

Thanks,

Kirkbybil

Humidity is irrelevant for a properly waxed of vacuum bagged cheese.
