camembert
« on: November 18, 2014, 11:55:53 AM »
Hi, I have problems with my Camembert cheese. 1. bitter after taste, 2. it is not so soft after 4 weeks of aging.
I use: 1/4 tsp flora denica per 1 gallon of milk
          1 pinch pen. candinum
          1/2 pinch geo. candidum
          ripening 30 min
         
          1/4 tsp liquid rennet per 2 gallon of milk
           coagulation 90 min
What is the reason, what can I do to resolve these problems?
thanks

Hey tsago, what milk, and how fresh was it? it seems the milk usually is to blame when the other things are correct.

Try leaving out the geo.

I have my cows and milk is always fresh. about softness, I think it is moisture problem, but bitter taste? I don't now.
