No intentions of dropping another wheel.

Now I am reading it may be a pH problem.  Gotta figure that one out.

Well amazingly I still have a chunk of this cheese I made 7 months ago left! To be fair it isn't really a very good Gruyere as I used a chunk of store bought Gruyere as my innoculant.

It has been wrapped in a plastic bag and is a bit grotty and, due to it being friendly with a blue cheese I also made ages ago, turned into a nice looking dry blue, almost Stilton like Cheese ;D.

And it's probably the best tasting cheese I've made, very nice Stilton type flavour, age certainly makes a difference!

That cheese looks GREAT! Wow!
I'd just tell everyone it IS a Stilton since it looks exactly like one.
Just goes to prove that many "best" cheeses are the result of unintended methods.
It really does look fantastic.

I second what Dave said, that looks beautiful.
Life is like a box of chocolates sometimes too much rennet makes you kill people.
