How long before molds develop on cheese ?

Postby Laurent_E on Sat Aug 17, 2019 11:42 am


I recently started making fresh cheese and I'm now trying to make rippen cheese. I'm controling the temperature in a cooler back using refrigerated water in small lids and a freezing plate and I'm getting a range of 11°C to 17°C.

I innoculated my cheese with pieces of a camembert's penicillium found on it's skin which I poured on my cheese. I'm on the fourth day now and I don't really see the penicillium develloping yet, how long does it usually take you to develop molds on the skin, be it naturally or with a penicillium culture ?

Thanks in advance
