Gentlemen, never underestimate the motivation of a fat man when it comes to food production.

A process, in my experience, followed immediately by consumption.

So, I cut into it. :)

Me like.

Much more noticeable rind, edible but not the best. The paste had a nice crumble. A shade saltier that the first, but smoother taste, less tang and a hint of cream. Still had good acidity but the part that struck me was a nutty flavour - not strong, just a hint.

Sounds pretty good.  I'm not a big fan of the wild rinds myself.  While I like the influence they have on the rest of the cheese, I tend to remove them and toss them.  If I had pigs, they would be happy!  The "tang" that caerphilly has when young does fade as you age it out, so it will take on new flavours as you wait.  While I'm aging my latest one, I generally see caerphilly as my quick cheese since I like the young version, and concentrate on other cheddar types for longer aging.  Perhaps that could be a mistake?  Anyway, glad to hear it is tasty.  A cheese to you!

I split the difference on this one. Just a smidge over 5 weeks.

Fyi, I have another in the press as we speak. The aforementioned Caerphilly for Rum deal. Woot! My first order - lol.
