This is my second drunken cheese (well with wine anyway) As with the beer gouda I added a cup of wine to the curds on the second wash. Unlike the beer wash a single cup of red wine in the curd does not look very appetizing. The whey turned a greyish purple color. I thought about taking a picture of it but I didn’t want to scare people off from eating the finished product. It really was not a pleasant color. The pressed cheese has a great light purple marbled look, and already has a great smell to it.
And now for the cheese to go into the cheese cave for a month to age. Updates later on how it comes out.
