Keeping Cheese

Storage

Young Brie cheeses will keep in the refrigerator for about 1 month. If the cheese is ripe and kept under good conditions, it will last for about 2 weeks.
 Brie cheeses are at their best when they emit an aroma of mushrooms and the rind gives when pressed slightly under your finger. A very strong smell or an ammonia-like odour is a sign that the cheese is overripe.
 
Store your Brie in its original wrapping or rewrap in plastic wrap to prevent damage and drying. Make sure the wrapping adheres well to the cheese.

Freezing is not recommended for Soft cheeses.
