Carter.
That looks perfect. You did a great job smoothing the surface and you should start seeing a brownish wrinkled rind form within 2 - 3 weeks. I just pierced my Stilton this evening so hopefully within a couple of weeks I can crack it and see if the magic happened.
And Cheese Head......I know what you mean about the wife and kids.
Even after my brother proclaimed my first Stilton "The best cheese he has ever tasted", my wife and kids still wouldn't even give it a try.
Oh well, I'm still nibbling away on that first cheese. I should finish it up just about the time this next one is ready.
Great job Carter. You'll really be happy with this in another month or so.

Dave

Really? That sucks, it's like a pug to some people they're ugly, P.S. Those people suck, and to normal people cute as hell.

Here is a high quality close up pic of the aging cheese. I don't think my camera renders the colors exactly. When you look at this cheese in person the blue is very blue like the blue in the bottom center of this pic.

The stilton is looking beautiful. The blue mold is starting to turn greyish and it's starting to wrinkle like brains, weird. It's starting to look like Dave's.
