Thanks for that Gurkan.  I made a wheel and I think it is about 25kg.  Its big enough!

Keeping the humidity above 85% shouldn't be a problem - we live on the edge of a rainforest.

Your blog recipe has a small amount of flora danica in it.  How much did you put in?  I was talking to a comte maker from France and he seemed to think it was not necessary since the milk is heated to 54 and it would be killed anyway.  I understand that but since they work with raw milk there would be some naturally occurring mesophiles in there anyway - and Im keen to replicate this as close as possible.  Do you have any thoughts on this?  Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thanks.

NV.
