Camembert Update


After one week of ripening at about 90% humidity and 11C (52F), my Cams are progressing wonderfully! Look at the white bloomy mould that is growing on them already! That's the Penicillium Candidum at work. :)

I'm continuing to flip and wipe them twice daily for another week, then I'll be wrapping them until the New Year! :)

Those Camembert look wonderful!!! I ordered a kit from New England Cheesemaking and am anxiously awaiting! Thanks for sharing!

Very exciting Dino!!! Please keep me posted! What kit did you order?

Hey Rain,
I got the basic cheese making kit. I wasn't sure what to get, but this is supposed to make several kinds, including the Camembert. We are wine drinkers, and wine and cheese … well, you know...lol

Oh I know...wine and cheese is my favourite combination! :)
I used to make my own wine too, and hope to one day start that again. If you have any questions please ask me (send me an email if you want a quicker response)...it's cool to see people starting the cheese making process!!!
