The grocery stores where I live have very little cheese variations. Mostly Kraft massive produced stuff.  I have to drive to Atlanta to get nice cheeses at the female market. They have foods from all over the world.  The cheese area is over whelming. I don't see a Beechers very often

My phone corrected the word for me. It is the Dekalb World Market. How my iphone came up with female I'll never know.

http://www.dekalbfarmersmarket.com/

"Here you'll find over 400 different varieties of cheeses from Switzerland to Uruguay, direct from the best sources available in this country and abroad. We offer many blue cheese, fresh goat cheeses and many old world and modern favorites. "

Ah, the joys of autocorrect.
The wise do not always start out on the right path, but they do know when to change course.

that is a weird auto-correct result!  DeKalb...might be a derivative of the German das Kalb (the calf), a 'nueter' gender word

If you're asking about my mustard seed Gouda's, I cut the first when it was about 10 weeks. To my taste the mustard was a bit to overwhelming, next time I make it I will not add the water I used for steaming the seeds.

Thanks, 10 weeks isn't very long.
As for adding the water, I feel the same with my Cumin seed Leiden. It's nice to see the seeds but adding all the water made it a bit over the top..

I added the water that my cumin seeds were boiled in and it was still pretty mild. I liked it fine though.

How much cumin seed did you add per how much milk? Mine was 1TBS/4gal.

Sorry to hear about the excess mustard character, Herman. Part of your education, I guess. I've got a lot of that going on myself lately. :P

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

Aah, I used 1 TBS/2gal boiled for 20 minutes.
I might keep the amount of seeds the same for appearance and only add half the liquid next time.
I might have to do this on a day I am making a curry so I can use the other half of the liquid.  ;D

Ah well, it's all a matter of taste. Some time ago I made a Pepper Jack that was too strong for some people, but I loved it  ;D
And this Mustard Gouda I didn't like, so next time I will adjust the recipe...
