Tasted my first camembert
« on: June 14, 2010, 10:28:20 PM »
I tasted the very first camembert I made last night. It was quite awesome :) Very happy with the result, and hope that I'll manage to get future ones like this, despite my tribulations with swelling as described in another post! :)



I blogged about it here: http://en.wheelinggourmet.com/blog/a-first-taste-of-my-homemade-camembert/

Don't use PVC Pipes to hoop your cheese - it leeches toxins and is NOT foodsafe

Nice cheese. Well done.

Besides the swelling, any other reportable issues or problems?

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

Nothing to report on this cheese. It didn't encounter swelling, it's another batch that did. That batch ought to be ready in 2, 3 weeks, if it gets to be edible in the end!
