Blue with nice veining
« on: June 20, 2015, 05:53:35 PM »
It's about 4 months old.  I'm really happy the way the loose curds allowed the penicillium to work its way through the cheese.

A lovely looking cheese. Does it taste as good as it looks?
What recipe did you use?

Thanks everyone.  I've been making a lot of cheeses lately, just not coming to the forum as much. 

I made the stilton in Mary Karlin's Artisan Cheesemaking.  These blues are pretty easy for me.  Funny, since I make everything else easily, because I cannot make a mozzarella to save my life.   Another one of life's little jokes that I get to play a part of. 

It tastes fantastic.  Quite strong flavor. Very acidic.  My wife got pissed when I opened and cut it, due to the strong smell.

I'm assuming that this does not have the same meaning as it does in this part of the world: i.e. that she got thoroughly inebriated.

Haha.  No, I meant she was somewhere between mildly unhappy and massively irritated.  My response, of course, was to get pissed  ;)

Made 4 camembert this morning.  Infused the milk with oyster mushrooms.  PC and Geo in the mix, and will be spraying with PC tomorrow.  Should be interesting.  My previous camembert were almost perfect.
