Is this eatable?
« on: February 21, 2010, 03:04:30 PM »
I was making my first cheese and got a little to much curd (or in dutch "wrongel") so I put some in a hoop and after it stiffed up I infected it with a Brie I bought in the supermarket. Now after three weeks it looks like this:



Should I eat this? Would I life? It smells like my feet. The dark spots are not as dark in real, only on the picture.

I try everything. I doubt it will hurt you, it might taste good.

If you don't want it, send it to me. ;D

Looks pretty good to me.

"It smells like my feet."

Hilarious...but maybe you should shower more often :)

Sounds like a Camembert?  Epoisse?

I agree with the others, it looks great to me!

My mother's second cheese was a brie -- she thought it was failing, but I went over there last night and it was just kind of flat and moldy looking, but it tasted very nice.  We ate it!

In France the bad smell is the eat it call !

We make washed rind cheeses that are divine !

At home we also always have home made colloidal silver so in case we have any poisoning we drink some and bingo ! But we never had to do that !

I'd say like the others "Go for it".   :)

Today my wive made onion-soup and home baked bread. I took a bottle of own-brewed Kölsch and couldn't wait anymore and took a piece. It tastes like Brie, I was surprised how good it tastes. Going to make more of it.
