Break out the cheese iron and take a core sample.  You never know, they may be at the height of perfection already and if not you can just reseal it.  Cool rinds by the way, my stilton just decided to turn a golden yellow and never got the really insane rind like yours has.

I think I will do that now

Well I took a core sample and looked really nicely. I cut it open and to my surprise there is some orange going through it as well. I added Geo 15 does anyone know it this is Geo or what it is.

Thanks

Wow,

that looks great!  If it tastes as good as it looks it'll be a real treat.  I've got another three weeks on my stilton.  Have a cheese for a great looking cheese.

That looks like B Linens. I had it running through my Stilton as well.

Thanks for the feed back Schnecken  and Jim. My first 2 did not have any orange in them at all, so I was surprised when I cut it open.

Absolutely could be the led lighting.  Just taste a bit. I found that the blue mildew mold is "furrier" and a bit grayer.  The molds that grew on my stilton weren't really "fluffy or furry" if that makes sense.


Looks delicious man.. Can you share complete recipe? I would love to make it
