Saturday will be 11 weeks, we have tryed this a couple of times over the past month or so, sort of a sneek preview ;)
this hasn't taken on the very blue taste of my other blues, so I'm sayin this isn't the same strain as my first PR.
anyway, will try it again this weekend and maybe bag it up 8)

Hi Hidri.
Yesterday made 11 weeks of ageing, we have tried/tasted this 4 to 5 times, yesterday it was very creamy has a mild blue flavor.
the flavor is nowhere near as sharp as my other blues (no blue bite but in a nice way)
we went ahead and vacuum bagged the whole thing without cutting it, I will see if the flavor sharpen's up a bit.
I am confused about the PR/PV, I ordered it twice (PR/PV) but have ended up with 2 totally different out comes :-\
I guess when we decide to cut this open we'll see if there is a huge difference in flavor.

the size of my cave is not very impressive but they work 8)

That does look great , I just love it when they get that orange color to them , and being "not too blue" , is something I like as well.

I like the blue flavor , but just a hint of it.

It must be close to ready , I know blues can be aged for quite a while , but all of mine seem ready at 6-8 weeks or so , too much longer and they seem to ammoniate a bit.

Have another cheese sir. ;D
No..........I'm not a professional CheeseMaker , but I play one on TV.

Ok. the pix stayed.
After 7 months from start date and 5 months of it stuck in a vacuum bag, we had to see what this tasted like.
We didn't think this had any veining WRONG! it looks great ^-^
this PR is different from the other type I had been using, the cheese has a rather light blue nip to it and an excellent sharp cheddar bite
The cheese it's self is very creamy nice smooth finish :P
The only thing I don't care for is the rind, way to waxy and very unpleasant mouth feel!
I had to bag it back up so Ms. J wouldn't eat it all ;)
