    I did my first cheese on 9-20-12 and I just tasted it a few days ago. To me it was still a little strong and bitter so I am letting it rest longer...

    here is the finished product. it did not get the color i was looking for but hopefully it taste great!.


    and since the amnps was still smoking good i decided to unthaw some peppers and put them on for maybe two hours?...then i will put them in the oven on broil till the skin turns black then let them sit for a little bit and then take a fork and peel the black skin off and then just run the fork threw the pepper and put it in a bowl with fresh garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and mix it all up and serve on crackers/ sandwiches..

    I think smoked cheese is kind of an acquired taste. If you have not had it before it can be a little strong but after eating it for awhile it really gets good. That was my experience after i first smoked some. I let it rest for 2-3 weeks and it seemed really strong but now that I have been eating it for awhile I can't see myself eating cheese that isn't smoked. The flavor still seems strong but boy do I like it!

    You have to let the cheese rest for a while.

    2 weeks is the minimum, I usually go a month.

    I opened a pack that I did 6 months ago last weekend, and it was even better than it was when it was a month old.
