Stilton, 3rd times a charm?
« on: May 02, 2013, 05:56:01 PM »
After 2 fails, here is the progress on number 3.  Funny thing is, I lost track of time on this one and finally pierced today, after about 4 weeks.  I hit pH targets for the most part, and used powder, so I have a nice blue going.  It is based on the wacheese.com recipe.

Crossing my fingers on this one.

Nice Looking cheese!  Did you smooth it? The later pictures do look a bit smoother.  There should be lots of room for blue to grow inside.....cant wait to see how it turns out!!

Yes, I did smooth it.  I kept some additional curds and used them to smooth it.  The curds were a bit on the dry side, but it worked out.  Forgot to take a picture.  Now I need to determine how many weeks before I cut it.  Maybe 8 weeks?  I will also probably poke it again in a couple weeks.
