First Hispanico
« on: December 30, 2013, 05:10:08 AM »
I recently opened my first Hispanico at about 11 weeks. Very hard and crumbly with a good taste showing the thermophilic character. Should be a good grating cheese.
The original rind was oiled but after I cut it I waxed the remaining pieces. It will be interesting to see how it develops over the next few months.

That's an awesome looking cheese!  How much does it weigh?  A cheese to you!
Juustoa is my main cheese!

Have another cheese. I love the rind development.

Thanks Glenn & Geo
It was an eight litre cheese so I think around 900g to 1 kg. I didn't actually weigh it.
