1st 2 are wrapped and in the fridge.

2nd 2 have started to mould over but some blue spots have appeared and seem to be under the white. When rgwwhite is scrapped back the blue looks worse and leaves a yellow/orange tinge to the part i removed it from..

Keep and enjoy a blue brie or kill it before it kills me?

Just tried the 1st one and it's bitter as hell :(

Very runny in the middle as well. The 1st taste is ok but it's followed by a bitter/sour after taste. :(

Tried the Blubrie in panic and thats fine but under mature.

Any ideas. Guess the crap curd start didn't help.

Blubrie was better, eddible but still slightly bitter :(

incidently the battle between blue and white mould ended in a masive victory for white. It gained 99% of the surface area. ;)

Got another batch coming up with the same recipie but the new batch is 9g salt per cheese. Hopefully that will help.

Only thing i can find on bitterness is lack of salt.

Anyone know anything else?
