Yes, these lipase cheeses have a wonderful aroma.  You will love this cheese when it's ready, but until then, you must be patient grasshopper.

One question to the Cheese Gurus; how long before one starts the alternating oil and salt treatment?

The make instructions seem a little sparse on that detail.

Hi Flound,

I did a quick search on romano in this board.  Found a bunch of threads, and generally, people seem to oil it around 6 weeks.  One or two "treatments".  Then, vac. seal around 6 months (to prevent too much moisture loss).
