It has been two week's since I pierced the Stilton, all of the holes had prity much filled in with mold, decided to pierce it again,
the RH has been slightly higher than I would like it (90-93 %) but that's a fairly easy fix, then again I have been having a slightly harder time keeping the temp where I would like it. at first the cool room wasn't cool anymore, (65ºf) we have been having 90ºF days and the nights haven't been all that cool.
So into a cooler with a gallon jug of Ice that seems to be doin the trick, down to 50ºf to 55ºf still adjusting just how much ice to put in there but it's comein around,
As of Thursday the cheese is four weeks old, smells wonderful, taste is creamy and starting to have that PR taste :P

We decided to take a peak at the inerds, the PR is growing nicely Nice blue flavor very creamy, now to wait a couple more weeks,
Still have a nice chunk of the last Stilton in the fridge, that means this one will be aged long enough when the last piece has been devoured :P

I haven't connected with my friend yet but I'll throw it at him and see what he thinks :)

Today the cheese is 8 weeks old so we took another taste, ^-^ the wife just loves it but agree's with me not enough bite but yet eatable if we wanted to :P
so it will sit for as long as the last piece of the last cheese will last (the wife said it's not goin to last two weeks)hhhhmmmm maybe :-\
( I am sorry for the fuzzy pic's my wife is not sure about macro) ???

Decided at ten weeks to cut it and bag it up.
took a piece to the local pub for a friend, He made the mistake of opening it and offering a taste to others, everyone just loved it even a little gal who dislikes blue cheese, she tasted it 4 times ^-^
My friend did not walk out with any of it.
My thoughts on this make, paste is very creamy and the flavor is good.
as far as the blue bite, it aint bitten back hard enough, definitely  needed at least two weeks or more of ageing.
My Wife said to quit bein so critical, she loves it and I didn't have to eat any of it , she'd eat it by her lonesome :o

Lookin' good! I can't wait to make a Stilton. It's on my winter list - the only shot I have at knowing I can maintain a good "room temp" for that many days. Watching your #5 with interest. (we need an emoticon that is drooling LOL)

Looks really good!  Your descriptions of taste and texture has placed the stilton on my list of upcoming makes!
