Hi all,
I am new to this board as well as making cheese.
We made a camembert about 2 weeks ago did all the things we were suposed to do, I salted the outside of the cheese ones they were out of the mold then put them on sushi maps in to a container with a small container of water and covered them up. Placed them in to the refrigerator 32-40F. after 10 days and turning them after five days there is no sign of
Blooming but a smell of Blue cheese with slight orange discoloration.
What is wrong ? Is it salvageable/edible?
Thank you Heinz
