« on: February 21, 2018, 08:10:08 AM »

Thanks
I've never had a batch this bitter and I've smoked alot of cheese.
Didn't want to ruin this as it is 3 of the big wedges from costco $$$ I cut them into thirds so each wedge is approx 1 1/4 inch or so.

Ruined.  Send it to me and I'll make sure it's disposed of properly

i usually vac pac my smoked cheese for at least 2 months before i try it-- i smoke mine for 2 hours and don't think that 2 1/2 hours would ruin it...give it some more time before you give up on it

Vacuum sealed for a minimum 2 months before I eat it.  Should be good to go with more time.   :tup: :tup:

Sounds to me it's the only way to eat cheese........ :P

For flies as "wet," or flies as "dry."
I do not care a whit—not I!
The natural fly is dry, no doubt.
While through the air he flits about;
But, lighting on the stream, you bet
He very often gets quite wet.
This fact is known to all the fish;
They take their flies just as they wish.

Ok. well it is much improved. Still a bit of a smokey bite. Guess it will continue to mellow. Not sure what i did on this batch to get it so "strong".
It will be salvageable  :tup: Kinda worried for awhile. If any of you are in Spokane and want a sample, just let me know!!!

There is no such thing as over smoked cheese, just under conditioned tongues.

I hope it works out for you, I've been in the situation where I've invested a ton of time and money into something that didn't work out.  It will probably be fine, if not, it is at least a learning experience.

The best cheese I have ever had got lost in the back of my frige and was literally there for two years (canned Cougar cheese).  When I got around to cracking it open, nobody believed what it was.  Amazing stuff.
