Well, this has air dried and spent some time in the cave, about 2.5 weeks since make day. It picked up some b.linen contamination. Ever since I added b.linens to a butterkase all my cheeses since have picked them up. I was getting wild ones on occasion as well, but now they're everywhere. Oh well, they add a touch of colour to the rind. I just keep brushing them and they seem happy enough. Anyway, since this one is intended for next Christmas time (note, intended allows for changes of plans) it was time for it to get a wax job. So, here it is just before the procedure. It weighed in at 1164g, and (apart from the b.linens), it's keeping itself nicely clean looking. Two small dark spots on one side, and one on the other. Nothing like the spotting I used to get last year. I wish I knew what it was I've learned? Anyway, the waxing went well. So, it will be some time (I hope) before this sees the light of day again, at least while naked.
