My first really good camembert!
« on: November 20, 2009, 12:42:08 PM »
Finally, I made a camembert to be proud of! The only problem, of course, is that it's the one batch that I forgot to add Geo to.
I have a new batch going with Geo that I am taking extra special care with the humidity and ripening at cooler temps.
Here are pics of the good camembert, started 5 Sept; cut into 18 Nov.
Thanks for all in the info in the cam discussions. Very helpful!

I want to just reach a finger through the screen and scoop up a finger full of that creamy yellow cheese goo!  :P

Pam,

Did you take notes that you could post?  I am taking a break from gouda since the gouda gods are not favoring me at the moment.  I think this is the next cheese on the list and am compiling my research.  This cheese looks excellent!!

WOW!

That is a great looking Camembert! I have just tried to make my own and are 8 days old so far. Hopefully they will turn out like yours.

Thanks, Cacio.
Hope yours turn out, too. I made a batch on Saturday, and am keeping my fingers crossed.
