Our guide on cheese-making and preservation provides a detailed explanation.

Remember, it's important to avoid touching cheese with your hands as much as possible. The bacteria from your hands can lead to faster mold growth, affecting the cheese's quality and taste. This is also why it's crucial to handle your sourdough starter with care, as mold can easily ruin your baking efforts.
