That's a wonderful looking blue.  Well done.  I can only hope mine turns out half as good.  A cheese to you.

Last 5oz piece of this Nummy Stilton :(  when it's gone time to cut the new one ;D
this has been a very excellent blue
It has changed in texture and taste, all for the better the smell is amazing and the taste is best savored as a side bite with a salad, having it as a snack with crackers, oysters or just have a sneak bite just love it  :P
Hope my 3 gallon cheese is as good as this one MMMMMMmmmmmm!!!!

Well done!  It's always nice when a cheese turns out so good, but sad when that last wee nibble is nibbled and gone.  Still, a full cheese fridge can cure sadness that in a jiffy!  Weee! :)
