Limburger Made With P candidum, Mold Like Camembert?
« on: September 26, 2009, 05:44:29 PM »
I just noticed LIMBURGER is made with p. candidium, which surprises me.  Does that raise a white surface like the Camembert/Brie?

Also, is it the R. Linens which gives the Limburger that smell?  I want to try one in the next few weeks, if it can sit in there with Camembert.

Baby Chee, the Limburger cheese making recipe that I built has P candidum as an option. The only time I tried making it (a mess) I only used normal B linens.

Thanks!  I went off of that recipe for my future Limburger.

Hopefully I can get some good results.  My Camb-Cave should house the Limberger well, but is P. Camb. a normal mold for Limberger cheese? Or did you throw it in as an experiment?
