Where have I gone wrong?

My first venture into cheese making was Franco's 7 day Lancashire Cheese and turned out well. The problem is my second attempt on Rik's Cheese Recipes Blue Stilton. I followed the steps as advised, now after 3 days in the press an 7 days under a plastic box there is no sign of a crust forming and as can be seen from the photo the cheese is snow white. The cheese has been kept under a plastic box, in a unheated utility room. I haven�t tasted it to see what it�s like. I�m not sure what to do with it Any ideas please.

I would give it a bit longer, maybe the humidity is great and the crust will take longer.

Also if u want to make double sure u can always sprinkle a bit of culture on top and see what happens.
