RIP Cheese

This has been a long time coming, and I have been dreading and avoiding it. But with experiments, not all can be successful.

Today I gave it up, and put the cheeseman to rest. The smell was not right, the temperatures have been way out of whack for the past few months and I knew it had to be done to keep eaters of cheese safe... I had to throw him away.

I am more than sad, but there will be more cheesemaking in the future.

Holiday Cheer

Things seem to be overly moldy... again. The smell is not so great either.
Perhaps the basement isn't the best place for the cheese.

Moving Day Part 2

So it is long overdue, but the cheese has now been moved to the basement. Hopefully he will continue to ripen successfully.

Moving Day

So, I have been under the weather as of late and the cheeseman has been stinking to high heaven... so the idea came to pass that perhaps it was time for one of us to relocate. Me having more things, it was time for the cheese to go... downstairs that is.

He is now resting outside on the porch. I am hoping that more frequent airing outs will be more successful with controlling the mold situation.

Field Trip

It was such a lovely day, cheeseman decided it was time to go outside and play.

And then it was time for a bath. A saltwater scrub and some dry-time on the table.
