I couldn't help but notice pictures of a dapper fellow smoothing out the cheese.

I've heard it mentioned, but haven't seen the process fully described. What exactly does it entail, good sir?

Apparently there's a thread called 'Pressing a Stilton' by Sailor, but danged if I can find it.

Sweet! Thanks H-K-J!

Seems a lot simpler than what I had envisioned...

Whoa! It's gonna be hard to get it to sit still for the camera! ;)

Don't eat too much blue, I read that 22 lbs is a lethal dose, FYI!

.large volume of pleural and pericardial fluid. In rats, at the LD50 dose level (11.6 mg/kg, i.p. and 8.2 mg/kg, i.v.), the water content in the lungs was increased, but in the skin it was decreased. Blood K+, hematocrit, red blood cell, white blood cell, hemoglobin, uric acid, cholesterol, blood urea nitrogen and alkaline phosphatase concentrations were all increased, while the total protein and albumin contents were decreased after i.p. injection of PR toxin. High content of protein was found in the pleural fluid and fluid due to ascites. In anesthetized cats the blood pressure and respiratory rate were progressively decreased and the heart rate was reflexly increased after i.p. injection. The i.v. injection produced a multiple response on the arterial blood pressure, but with a progressively decreasing heart rate. Arrhythmias were observed in the late shock stage in the case of i.p. or i.v. injection. In the isolated rat auricle preparations contractile force was more affected that heart rate. We conclude that PR toxin produced acute toxic effects in animals via an increase of capillary permeability and a direct damage to the lungs, heart, liver and kidney.

Pierced this a week ago, paste is tasting delish :P it's 4 weeks old now.
the smell has changed somewhat and has a slight ammonia aroma, not to bad yet, we are airing it a little longer, also lowering the R/H.
going to check for veining in 2 more weeks
Just keep on keeping on :)
