Wine Fridge Cheese Cave
Q. I am a nervous, soon to be first-time home cheesemaker. If I am successful at some of the beginner cheeses, I will want to try some that require a bit of aging. Could I possibly use a wine fridge as a small cheese cave?
A. Many of our customers have used a wine fridge for aging their cheese. One of the most important steps is to make sure you can monitor the temperature, and the moisture accurately. A good hygrometer, such as the one sold on our website will give you this information.
Most people need to modify the cooler somewhat. Adding enough moisture seems to be the biggest challenge.
