cut open some to see how they are doing.
One little scare was that the Camembert that was my first attempt. Tasted a piece with the rind and got a very bad after taste of urea or something. So checked the inside and it tasted fine, had a bit of an bitter aftertaste but i thingk thats from the milk i use since i also get it when i make yogurt.

Sorry if this question is answered elsewhere, but, do you have a recipe for the Brie, it looks wonderful, maybe that should be my next challenge......

Thanks BC, do you think you could use buttermilk and the brie for the culture as mentioned with other recipes on here, or do I need to buy a starter culture? Do they need to go in a cave like the stilton? Is the 9 degree ripening temp crucial or is a bit above it okay, I would suspect my Stilton is sitting at approaching 15C.

Sorry for all the questions!

When u buy the starter culture, its the culture that will give it a specific cheese group taste. Lots of people from what ive read use buttermilk as a starter so I would say go for it and see what happens. Adding a piece of cheese to the batch (blitz it) will hoepfully give u some of the traits of the cheese u are trying to make. As for ripening, people do what they have available, stick em in the bottom of the fridge, stick a thermometer in their so u know how cold it is and try and aim for the temp that is recomended for the specific cheese.
No prob with the questions, makes it a great resource when all people submit their experience.
