Our cheese is now a month old. It has been coated in fetching red cheese wax and has been sitting in a dark cool crawl space adjacent to our basement foundation for a month now. Probably it should be somewhere cooler, but so far it’s free of mould. Perhaps we’ll move it to the fridge.
It is a rather diminutive disc, considering that we started with a gallon of milk. The container it’s in is a snug fit for a sandwich, if that gives you an idea of the scale. Even if small-scale cheese-making isn’t an efficient use of time or resources, it has been fun and instructive to experience the process first-hand.
