Triple Cream Brie Question
« on: May 16, 2014, 10:49:22 AM »
My son asked me to explain Triple Cream Brie to him.
Honestly I was stumped.
Perhaps someone could help me with the concept.
I know I have made an incorrect assumption, but here goes!!
If I am using  1 L of 3.25% milk and get a yield of 10% then I assumed that the milkfat content of my cheese was approx. 32%
Then he said-so what you are telling me Dad is that if you started with a 35% cream and made Brie at a 10% yield-then your Brie would have a milkfat content of 350%!!
Yikes- Caught in my own web :)

Where did I go wrong? :-[
