Just Opened a 6 month old Gouda !
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:07:02 PM »
Wow , this is my best cheese yet , it is the first one that was made according to the recipes from Caldwells book , mastering artisan cheese making.

I pressed this with much less weight than I have before , and the texture is great , soft but a little crumbly , and it melts fantastic , just like it should.

This is as good as a store bought 2 year aged Gouda we bought not too long ago , I really wonder now if they always are honest when advertising the age of cheeses. A)

Made with Store bought P/H milk , but a superb Cheese !

A cheese to you!  That's a great looking result. 
The wise do not always start out on the right path, but they do know when to change course.

Looks great!  Is that waxed or bandaged?

I use liquid coating and then wax on all my aged cheeses , I am very busy during the work season and don't have the time to spend on natural rinds.

Awesome!  It's very nice to see that great cheeses can be made with store bought P/H milk, since that's all I have access to right now :)

The cheese looks delicious. A cheese to you from me as well.
