Hi orion113,

A slurry is when you harvest mould from an existing cheese.  So, he took a piece of Danish Blue, scraped out a bunch of blue mould from it, and probably mashed it about in some warm water or milk.  Remove the chunky bits.  Pour this "slurry" into your milk.  That will get the mould spores into your milk.  I do this to get moulds for cam's and brie's and blues because I don't make enough of either to warrant buying and keeping the spores in the freezer.

- Jeff

Yes , Jeff is right on the mark , mashed up some blue cheese in warm milk added it to the milk , I don't even pick out the chunky bits , just try to mix it until as smooth as possible.

I would never use enough to justify buying the stuff , it would be outdated and no good before I would use much.

This cheese got great reviews from neighbors and friends , it is long gone now and another is about six weeks old , this one looks to have much more blue in comparison to the last one , will put up a post as soon as I decide to open and eat it.

Cheers , Jim.
No..........I'm not a professional CheeseMaker , but I play one on TV.

Interesting and sounds like a very slick and economical trick.  Thanks all for the tips.  I would like to try this next I think, probably should do one more Colby for practice as it at least looks like I may have gotten some of the basics down now with heating times, recognizing a clean break, and a few other basics.

Hmmm, I just noticed that the recipe is for 2 5 gallon batches of milk, a bit over my means now, I don't have a double boiler set up for that.  I will have to find a 2 gallon recipe I guess......rats!!

Hidri,
  PR est une abréviation pour Penicillium roqueforti qui est la famille de moisissure bleu qui donne le gout de cet fromage.

  Par "slurry", il veut dire une suspension.  Il prend un échantillon de ce moisissure d'un fromage commerciale, il mélange le bien avec du lait, le filtre est ajout ca dans son recette comme innoculant.  C'est un façon de faire un fromage particuliaire si tu n'as pas la culture.

I had no yogurt culture , so I just omitted it.



La recette a demander pour un culture dans du yogout (oui tu peut inoculer ton lait avec du yogout!)  Il n'a la pas eu donc il l'a omis.  Donc ce qu'il a fait c'est de improviser son recette en utilisant un morceau de fromage pre-existant pour inoculer son lait.  J'espere que c'est plus claire maintenant.

"omitted it" veux dire supprimer de la recette ?
