Cheesy update

My first block of cheese seems to be coming along nicely. It smells like cheese. It looks like cheese. It's forming a nice rind. I'll probably leave it out for one more day before I wax it and then let it age for a couple of months.

We made hard cheese a few months ago and did not do a good job of pressing it, so it was not smooth which prevented the wax from sealing fully, so we ended up with moldy cheese. Live and learn I guess.

I just waxed mine yesterday. I used 3 or 4 coats instead of the recommended 2 just to be safe. I'm hoping that it will turn out OK.
