Stilton 2
« on: May 16, 2013, 06:06:00 PM »
Second Stilton.  Tweaked with the help of the forum members.
Changes include:
- doubled the volume
- stacked the curds higher
- stirred for the proper length of time as per the recipe
- used skewers to pierce the cheese or better mold growth

Looking good! Are you going to treat the rind in any way?
I use to get mine out of the cave every day for half an hour and cleaned the rind twice  week with a brine solution...

Yes I wash it with a weak brine solution once a day.  Otherwise it will grow lots of white mold and turn into a brie type cheese.  That was my problem with my last stilton, too soft and i didnt ever wash it.
