Twisted Squirrel – Things Are Blooming!

You probably know that I decided to make another batch of Little Squirrels (Twisted Squirrels), but this time using PLA instead of Geo 17.  It is now day 10 and things, they are a blooming!

This was day 9 and the bloom was starting to move up from the sides.

I was quite surprised to see that the bloom was an off white, almost yellow.  I was not expecting the linens to show up for a while.

It is common for the bloom on the Squirrels to start on the sides.

You can see the colour and the velvet really coming on.

Now on day 10 it was time to flip the cheese and take a few more pictures.

The colour is still there, but it seems like some white has creeped in .

I am aging these at 8C for now and when they get wrapped I will move them to the regular fridge.  So far I am pleased with the results, but I will reserve calling it a success until I finally get to taste one.  I will have some more pictures up on the Facebook page later in the week.20140423-094429.jpg
