Morning/evening bundy.

When I first started making Camembert, I researched some info - links and posted it here.

I used that info to help build an average Camembert recipe I posted here, see section on consuming anywhere from 3-5+ weeks after making. Of course those times are dependant on making process.

So in summary, the shelf life when ready ~3 weeks old is about ~3 weeks depending on how you like it. Hope helps.
