Muenster - Added Blue Mold Instead Of B. linens!
« on: February 17, 2010, 10:24:40 AM »
I added blue mold in my milk while making muenster instead of b.linens.   It looks horrible but do you think it will okay to eat in 3 months?  Should I still wax it?  Thanks.

Why don't you just save it and try to age it like a blue. I don't see why it wouldn't be edible, just a bit different from a Muenster!
I don't think you ever want to wax a blue or a Muenster; they both need to breathe.
Maybe someone with more experience will jump in here and predict how this may turn out.

It certainly won't hurt anything but it will be an interesting flavor and texture for a blue cheese.
