Using purchased cheese for mold
« on: December 26, 2017, 10:01:32 PM »
My Dad loves Maytag blue but is finding it increasingly difficult to get - does anyone have experience with using the cheese as a source of your mold?  Do I just buy some and cut it up and put it in at the appropriate time?

Hi Alice, there is a thread about growing your own PR someone wrote up just search for it on the forum.

Hey Alice, you might try searching on "slurry". I think you're asking about inoculating with a commercial blue cheese.
