Our friend, Steve Shapson...The Cheesemaker. Here it is.

Seems to work pretty well for what I do.

My target aging for this style is 42 days as suggested by the Reblochon videos. This one got cut 3 days early. Not a bad decision at all. The selection of cultures for this make was a departure from my earlier two makes. Part of that decision was to see if I could simplify the culture addition. Simplify I did! Very nice cheese. I think I'll make that my standard going forward.

I realize I still have my Reb #4 in process using the original culture mix, but this make is inspirational for me. Of course I will repeat it to convince myself that it can be consistent. So far, it sure looks that way. Yum!  8)

Thanks, Hande.

Seems like the recipe/process is becoming more reliable. I'll keep working at it. I picked up some spruce boards yesterday so that I can fine-tune just a little more.  ;)

I agree with Hande.  That's a beautiful cheese Boofer, so another cheese to you.
The wise do not always start out on the right path, but they do know when to change course.

Thanks, Jeff. I'm in there slugging away.  :)

I took a half wheel over to share with my Dad today because he liked Reb #2 so much. This one didn't disappoint today either. He helped me finish my spruce boards for Reb #4 today before lunch. I'm getting him involved in the cheesemaking process. Good stuff.

Great looking cheeses again Boofer! Interesting idea to use spruce boards. I know that a lot of cheesefarms here use wooden shelfs to mature their (coated) cheeses, but I have to ask what kind of wood it is....
But meanwhile a cheese to you for the Rebs!

Thanks for the cheese, Herman.

The wood is spruce. I'm trying to adhere to Yoav's guidance on creating the perfect Reblochon. Although I seemed to be on the right track to produce acceptable cheeses, I wanted to tighten up my process just a little more. We'll see how it works out.

Thanks, Yoav. Three weeks...September 9th. I'm counting the days. There are a few changes in the Reb #4 make that should be interesting.
