3rd cam
« on: May 08, 2013, 07:49:10 PM »
After all the suggestions I received on the runny cam, I have made a new batch and aging them in the 42 degree beer fridge.  So far they look pretty good.  Just not sure when they will be ready.  They're only a couple of weeks old, but I'm pleased with the way they looked and felt and how the mold is developing.

They look great.  A cheese to you.  I would think they will be ready 4 or 5 weeks from make day.  But keep an eye on them and see.

Two and a half of the Cams re gone and I'm very happy with the way they came out.  Buttery, smooth and just unyielding enough.  The one issue is that the rind is a little tough, probably because I didn't pat them down when the mold started blooming.
Thanks to all for suggestions on how to improve from my last failure.

A cheese to you for what looks to be a very successful outcome.  Nicely done.
