Any one want to venture a guess as to how a Colby will end up after I forgot it in the brine for about a week! ::)

I would guess dry as well as salty in the end.

you can try soaking it in water with cacl and a bit of vinegar to balance out the salt.

I laughed at this ...... sorry it really is funny.

I suspect you have a grating cheese   Or something to be used as a garnish , where the salt does not effect the dishes outcome too much .  And can actually even add to the experience .

But it means aging it out a little longer .

Then tell every one you intended it to be that way.

Yea I will let it age and see what happens.
It's OK I laughed when I realized what I had done.
My cave is full to it's limits and this was the last batch of aged cheese I was making this year. I will make fresh from now on. My farmers market started this past Saturday. Guess I was busy making Chevre, Crottin cream cheese and yogurt for the market. Went to move the brine bucket and it seemed a bit heavy!
