Low fat white mould cheese
« on: May 11, 2015, 05:08:52 PM »
Hi all,

Are there any low fat white mould cheeses out there to make? My wife loves brie/camembert, but cannot eat it regularly. She asked me if there was something low fat that I could make. Would camembert work with low fat milk?

Thanks all.

It will work but you'll want to go with a stabilized recipe. If you use low fat milk in a surface ripened cheese it will turn completely liquid. Unless that's what you are going for....

Thanks Francois. Do you have a suggested recipe? With stabilised, do you mean adding a bit of thermo starter to the recipe?

I just realised that I posted this in the wrong white mould forum. Is there any way of moving it?

Thanks.

I'm  sure I've put up a stabilized recipe on here before. Basically split your starters half meso half thermo. Start your ripening at the meso temp then increase to thermo temps until you hit your pH marker. If you need a specific recipe I can dig one out for you tonight.

Thanks Francois. I've found this thread (http://cheeseforum.org/forum/index.php/topic,7198.msg51358.html#msg51358) which I think gives me a recipe to follow. I'll trial it with a very small batch size and see how I go. If you do have easy access to a recipe that differs from this one, then I'd greatly appreciate a copy. I started going through all 54 pages of your posts, but that process was a little overwhelming.
