Brie - Using Store Bought Brie As Culture Mix?
« on: June 30, 2010, 02:37:37 AM »
I am wondering if I put a spoonful of Brie from a commercial package of cheese in my raw milk would it make a Brie?  Of course it wouldn't have a rind, but maybe it would have the flavor? Has anyone tried this?

This topic has recently come up a few times. Check out this thread . In short, it's an iffy situation and there are a lot of factors involved, many of which are unknowns.
I am constantly in awe of the very first people that consumed these things, despite how funky looking and smelling they had become.
