I last posted about my Clothbound Cheddar just after week 5, there was some life to the mould/flora on the bandaging but it wasn’t where I thought it would be. What a difference 3 more weeks make.
I have a new dual zone cheese fridge and the lovely Cheddar has gone into a new ripening box and into the fridge. So without further ado and such I present to you my Clothbound Cheddar at 8 weeks old.
I am really happy with the way this cheese is turning out. There isn’t a funky or mouldy smell to it nor have I had any issues with the mould spreading outside of the ripening box. I think that I have successfully suppressed the need to scrub the rind and get rid of the mould. I am excited to see how this turns out. I will post again at week 12 to show how things have changed. I will have pictures up on Facebook later this week.
Until next time, go and make some cheese!
