Cambozola in a Tallegio Mold??
« on: January 02, 2014, 01:37:40 PM »
Went a little strange with this one.  I tried to make cambozola in the brie molds before with little success.  This time I used a Tallegio mold and sprinkled a really good PR on the curd when halfway full.  I then waited 30 minutes before filling the mold.  Looks like I might have a winner as the blue is showing through and the PC is running away.  ;D

Here's the PR I used.  Seems to take off a bit quicker and stronger than others.

So why do you think the Tallegio mould was more of a success than the Brie mould?

It's looking fabulous. I love the idea of sprinkling the PR. Did you just sprinkle the powder unhydrated?

Actually I got it all out and was going to make a Tallegio but didn't have the culture I needed so I though, what the heck, I'll do cambozola. LOL

I think the success came with the new PR and the sprinkling of the powder on the wet curd and then letting it sit for 30 minutes.  This PR comes on fast and furious.

No I just put it in the milk during the make, same as brie.  That strain grows great.

That's a beauty, Al! When do you think you'll pierce it? Looking forward to seeing the results, as I'm thinking of a cambozola myself.

Pierced it yesterday while turning it.  When I went to turn it this morning the holes were nearly closed up with PC growth.

It's just under 8" square, 7.7 X 7.7 and 6" high.  I have two bottoms which make flipping it a lot easier and just got the divider.
