muenster without B linens?
« on: February 09, 2010, 11:37:51 AM »
Deb, you said you have been making muenster for years without the B linens.  Do you just follow the directions and omit the B Linens?  Age it the same?  Any tricks?
Thanks, Ginger

That's pretty much it follow the instructions and don't add the b.Linens. In fact the first recipe I had from a very old book didn't even mension b.linens but otherwise is pretty much the same as others I have seen.

Hi i'm interested in making raclette cheese that also requires the growth of b. linens. I am interested however in making cheeses without adding powdered cultures and developing them naturally. how did you accomplish this? using alcohol as a brine? using a previous rind?
