Was similar to what I was going to do. Dont understand why doing 2 batches in 2 days. LOL, reread it 4 times.
I was going to press the curds slightly then cut them the next day and then repless them lightly again intro shape.

The first batch of curds is drained for 1 day. The second batch for 1 hour. The 1 hour batch lines the bottom, sides and top of the mold with the 1 day in the center.

Is it to aid in drying the cheese - starting with a drier center? Or would the blue mould need a wetter curd to develop in? Only thing I can come up with. :oops:

Interesting detailed readup in the process, they talk about layers but thats it.

the curds in the interior have a different acidity and a more open texture than the exterior curds

Forgot the important part -- that does...what? Allows the mould to permeate the cheese easier?

it could incubate the curds better,?.The interior being more acid could create the bloom quicker.
