Using rind of 'Purchased Epoisses' to smear my make
« on: January 21, 2014, 03:13:26 PM »
I have seen references to using a rind from a purchased epoisses for the smearing of a current epoisses attempt.   Just exactly how is this done?

Thanks,

I have not heard of that, but the traditional method seems pretty simple. Wash with a simple brine the first week, then alternate between brine and a diluted brandy wash. Marc de Bourgogne brandy is the typical one.
