Blue Cheese #4 – The Great Deceiver, or One Cheese Does Not Make A Success!

Fall Cheese Bloom – A Fine Coat of White Covers All.

Last week I was in a struggle to save a semi-lactic cheese that I was attempting to make.  I did manage to save two “logs” out of an eight litre batch.  I am excited that the white bloom has started.  This time I used…
