Buttermilk Blue
« on: September 10, 2013, 04:10:08 AM »
Raw ewe buttermilk blue



This is the buttermilk blue I managed to make from raw ewe milk and self cultivated raw ewe buttermilk on 15.08.2013. The picture was taken 8 days after unmolding. I will post more pictures soon. The penicillium roqueforti has taken over the whole surface of the cheese right now. I'm in the 4th week of ripening and will wrap it in aluminum foil which is clad on the inside to support the development of secondary alcohol in the cheese with an anaerobic ripening process. In the first and second week of ripening I pierced the cheese twice and I think it worked, so that the cheese develops mold inside.

I will keep you up to date :)

I managed to macerate grape leaves in gin and so I decided to wrap one of my buttermilk blues in one of them. Now I'm waiting and hoping. I will cut the first one on Saturday (5th october, ripening days: 51).
