Aging Cheese
« on: January 20, 2012, 11:35:30 PM »
I have a small refrigerator that I use for aging cheese, 5 cheeses are waxed and two are not.  The problem is I'm running out of room on the racks, can I put bamboo mats between waxed cheeses and stack them? (my thought would be only two high)  I plan on investing in a full-size refrigerator at some point, but can't do it right now. I was also thinking about making a wood rack system inside the refrigerator, but don't know what kind of space needs to be between the cheeses.  Also, the problem with a modified rack is I have wheels of  different heights, some 2" and some 4" and my Parmesan is 3", they also very in diameter.  Any advice would be appreciated,

Andy

Andy I doubt that the bamboo mats between the wheels will allow enough air circulation. Better off with some kind of rack system.
