Blue Cheese Update #3

April 7, 2011

The aroma coming off of this is amazing.  Funky, funky blue… Love it.  The brown and blue and green streaks are covering the outside as I expected. As you may see on the left, there is a small vertical crack in the rind.  My humidity fell below where I wanted it so it dried out.  I have been keeping an eye on it, but this seemed to appear almost overnight.  I corrected it by putting a damp paper towel in the corner of my aging box.  This brought the RH (relative humidity) back within range.  I am going to give this a scrape, and then back into the box for another couple of weeks.  By the 3rd week in April, it will be ready to come out of the box, wrap in aluminum foil, and then live on the bottom shelf of the fridge for another 3 months.  I have to say I am pretty damn excited…
