Hi shotski,

I smoothed it at about five days, just before putting it in the cave. I made it on a Monday and smoothed and put into the cave on the following Saturday.

Thanks, I have started taking better notes. Here is the link to my 3rd Stilton if you are interested. You got very nice veining in the centre of your stilton.

Hi Shotski,

I've been following the thread on your third Stilton. It looks wonderful. Can't wait to see the finished aged product.

How much milk did you start with and did you use cream as well? I do not have the book you referred to.

Hi shotski,

I used 8 liters of milk (3.25%) store bought and 500 ml of 35% cream. cacl, meso C1  frozen from mother culture. Some PR at ripenining time and a pinch more when layering broken up curds in the mold.

Beautiful Delislem! A definite cheese for you. As Tiarella has taught me " Cheese Erotica"
Good job.
Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to diss a Brie. I cheddar the world and the feta cheese, everybody's looking for Stilton.

Thanks Spike,

Not being so polished, I would personally call it "food porn" ;D But your version is certainly more acceptable when I go out in the world. That being said, I probably should refrain from metaphors...they tend to get me into trouble. >:D

Thank you, Spike!  As strange as it may seem, it really helps the forum feel more friendly to me.   :D
