Well I have been tending to these well, but I completely forgot about them for a day this week, as I was organizing a big birthday party, so decided to transfer them into the fridge for safe keeping. Decided on Friday that I had better open one and check that I hadn't ruined the cheese.
The body of the cheese looks like Alex's with small holes scattered through out. The cheese itself is moist, soft and pliable, and very creamy. The flavour at the moment is young, but still beautiful. The block was about 2 pounds in weight, and it is almost gone. Even my husband, who is not a cheese lover at the best of times, has come back asking for more.
So I still don't know what the water bath does to the cheese, but this one is a keeper. Hoping to make it again today, as this one is disappearing fast. Sorry still can't post pics.
