Your best recipe of Stilton
« on: January 17, 2016, 02:59:18 PM »
  Hi guys
I have already made two Stilton but I am not satisfied with a result.
The first one cracked today during piercing and the second one wich I made yesterday is to dry.
 What is your best and most satisfied recipe for Stilton?

Thanks for answers.

Hi Kruder,
How much weight did you use to press your cheeses?

  Hi Frodage3
I did not press curd at all. I used recipe from https://translate.google.com.ua/translate?hl=ru&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fcheesehead.ru%2Fretsepty-stilton-stilton%2F
 Next time  I`ll try Al`s recipe. In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unVdU4MgRAA they don`t press curd.
 Does anybody control Ph-level on each stage?

Sorry for my English it is not my native language :(

 That`s my 1st Stilton after 1,5 month.
I cut cheesehead because it gets softer. The other half I covered with the foil and put it back to the "normal" fridge where the temperature is 7C.
The taste is almost perfect and I`m going to make it every month.
