Penicillum album > Gliocladium album
« on: March 10, 2010, 12:14:19 PM »
Does anyone know of a supplier still making P. album?    It was once important in Camemberts, I have not been able to buy it in the US for a couple  of years now.   I've been keeping my culture going, but  I'm assuming at some time I will screw up and lose it.

P album was renamed many decades ago to Gliocladium album. Is that the mold you mean? What was once called in cheesemaking p album or camemberti is now grouped into various variants of candidum. Your best bet is to contact the original manufacturer and ask what the same product is now called.
