Just opened my first Caerphilly at four weeks old , it is great !
I was a little hesitant to open it this early as I just couldn't imagine a cheese haveing much flavor at four weeks old , boy was I wrong !
This is very flavorful but mild , an all round good cheese for eating out of hand , perfect texture , moist but still a little crumbly.
It melted well and the wife even fried a few pieces in olive oil , I recommend anyone try this.
This one was a four gallon make from the book "Mastering Artisan Cheese Making" .
Luckily I made another last weekend as this one wont last long.
This will be my go to cheese for everyday use and gifts , I am very glad I tried this one !
My newest one is made with Ma 4002 as well as Flora Danica and some Geo , it will have a natural rind instead of being waxed as this was , i am hoping for an even better result.
