I decided to cut into the stilton early as it was getting very soft.  What a rookie mistake!  Cheese was good but I know it could have been so much better If I had just resisted the urge.  I think I will try this cheese again, only this time I will put it in the appropriate mold.

I had the very same issue with the first Stilton I made. It was ready in 4 weeks and it tastes amazing.

I think it was only 3 wweks old or so.  Still it was pretty good.  Im reserving myself to wait the full term for the coastal blue and jarlsberg I have going right now

Just an update, the stilton is gone.  It seemed that a week or two in foil in the fridge really set this cheese straight.  The taste developed into an amazing blue/brie blend.  Quite the treat!
