Hi Mal,

That sounds about right.  I suspect one could press a bit more vigorously to get a more closed interior as the pressing is a bit on the light side in this make.  Regardless, I quite like the results of this make procedure and use this cheese to help extend the life of ones that require more aging.  A nice tasty cheese that is ready in 3 weeks is a keeper in my books.  Looking forward to your photos.

Good job Ozzie!  It's like christmas every time you crack a wheel for the first time.  :)

Hi Jeff,

After some serious munching I have come to the conclusion that Caerphilly is worth making for it's own sake, not just to keep your fingers off the other cheese!  I can't believe how fast the wheel I cracked disappeared!  :P

Hi anut,

I agree.  It is a good cheese in its own right.  The short time to enjoyment is just an added benefit, but it has its uses!

All I have is pictures... the mice ( two legged genus) have left me with nothing but memories... It's gone . . . nothing left . . . The buggers ate the lot nearly 1/2 a kilo of cheese gone in a day . . . . not even crumbs. 

Ahhh well... its saturday tomorrow time to do another.    These are the images from wednesday

Congratulations Mal, a very good looking cheese indeed!  :) Sounds like it tasted fantastic as well.

How are those cams coming along?

That's a great looking caerphilly Mal!  And the taste sounds like it was spot on.  You'll need to do something about those mice though (or make a bigger cheese!).  :)

Very nice looking result.  Are those chives?   Don't forget to post your tasting notes when you try it.
