The Brie Cheese Kit includes the additional items and ingredients needed to complete the Universal Base Kit and make multiple batches of this quintessential bloomy rind cheese.

Originating from its namesake province in France, Brie is a cows milk cheese with a white bloomed rind and rich oozing texture when ripe. As this cheese ages, the texture of its inner paste changes due to the enzymatic activity of the lactic cultures as well as candidum molds.

Humidity and Temperature control are key to the getting the Candidum Molds to grow desirably. If your cheese cave or refrigerator doesn't have settings for the desired temperatures, consider picking up one of our Temperature Controllers which includes a hygrometer sensor allowing you to measures the humidity in your aging space.

This cheese is sure to impress those you present it to and provide a fun cheesemaking experience to the home cheesemaker looking for a new challenge.
