Thank you Gentlemen.
Both responses are quite helpful to me.
Spoons- My wife got me the kit for my birthday and I believe it was from Makecheese.ca. You are correct in a very commercial style- also their technical support was lacking and a response took 7 weeks on some early issues.
When I saw the finished result, I decided that they were more suited for baking
So, now I generally smoke them lightly and they are used for baked Brie topped with green chilis..
I am hopeful that this lactic-set style( news to me
) will be more suitable for ripening and yield a creamier result.
I do like to experiment with salting the rinds.
One will be rubbed with Truffle salt.
The other will be finished with Juniper salt.
