Washing The Yukon Rafts – Spruce Wrapped, Beer Washed Reblochon Update.

Now that there is a break in my Cheese Making Class schedule I can play catch up on some the cheeses that I have made.  The one I often get asked about is my latest batch of Spruce Wrapped Reblochon, which I have nicknamed “Yukon Raft”. It has been about a month since they were made and I wanted to give an update as to their progress.

I was waiting for the Geotricum to bloom before I could start washing the cheese with the beer that I had selected, around day 4 I was pleased to see that they were ready to get a good coating of the beer wash.

On day 3 I prepared the mix of Salt, PLA and Yukon Brewery's Yukon Red (an amber ale)
