Running out of containers for the cave
« on: May 05, 2012, 09:15:25 AM »
I just want to share this tip: I'm had two Reblochons (made last weekend) in a container in the cave. This weekend I made two large Brie (23 cm diameter) so I needed 2 containers for draining and I had only one spare. So I took the Reblochons out of their container, placed the glass shelf so close below the above shelf that the Reblochons just fit and closed the front side almost completely with plastic foil. On the shelf with the Reblochon I have a wet tissue.
I think this way I created an environment for the Reblochons pretty close to the container  ^-^.

The foil is permeable to vapor.  so dont relay on it for a long time.  you will get condensation and dry the cheese.

Thanks for the warning Tomer, I'll monitor them closely and spent a couple of euros next week...
