The cheese I started way back in June is as ready as it will ever get. I have to be honest - I am disappointed. I made two and ate the other one after a month and it was far better. It was a cream cheese style of base I began with and it was a better cheese after it aged.
This one was a mozzarella style of cheese I innoculated with mold and it did not work as well. It didnt mold enough internally and the flavor is not as pronounced. Live and learn-from now on its the cream cheese base that works and its the one I will do from here on out!
I should clear this up a bit - the cheese came out fine its that I was expecting it to be a lot stronger than it is. The mold was definitely not as permeated as in the cream cheese variety but the flavor still has a little bite to it. I may not like to fold my socks but I have very exacting standards when it comes to flavor!
