ooh, thanks for your encouraging responses, this week I will tackle my first blue, I just read your stilton thread Al and any hesitations have gone to the wind. I am excited. I only have a pot that holds 9 liters though, I may try 16 liters ( I have another one that holds 8 liters). I will read up this week on blues, and give it a shot at the end of the week. Thanks for all of the resources, and I am also going to look into a cave set up similar to yours.
Schnecken, I did buy the PR culture last week, I was just looking for a ph meter before making my first, but I may hold off a bit longer on that buy. I also need to invest in a cave, and didn't want to shell out for both the fridge and the ph meter at once, but couldn't decide which one to get first (which one is more urgent). As of now I am keeping my cheeses in my cellar, I think it maintains about 14 degrees C, but I'm not sure, so I have been limited in the cheeses I could try.
