Looks wonderful boofer! Do you put it in the house frig now? Any extra protection, or just the paper?
It's in the big fridge now. The paper allows gas exchanges and the deeper cooling (37F/3C) of the big fridge allows the ripening to proceed to the innermost paste evenly.
Yummm, you are piquing my interest in this wonderfully square cheese. In pongwise - where would you place in on the pungency scale 1 being not and 10 being 'Hot'.
I'm considering starting another Epoisses but maybe a Taleggio might be more of a socially acceptable Christmas soft cheese
At room temperature this cheese is soft & creamy and just short of going gooey. You can smear/spread it or gently slice it on bread or crackers.
"pongwise" ? If you're cryptically referring to the stink factor, my estimation would be no more than a 2. Hey, wait a minute...is that something REAL? The pong scale? Pungency: 1=cool, 10=hot?
