Queso Blanco, Garlic Salt Flavoured, Pressed

anyone done a garlic salt pressed queso blanco?  Could you age it? or is that a horribly bad idea?

Nope, never, guess it could be aged/ripened if moisture content was low enough and acid level high enough. Big problem with aging small cheeses is humidity control to avoid excessive drying and if moist then minimizing surface mold. Let us know if you try!

sounds incredibly finicky and probably shouldn't be one of my first undertakings, but I do plan on ordering the starters for cheddar next month and ill be building myself a press before then, but once I get a cheddar or two under my belt I will revisit this and try to age one just because I can
