My vegan cheese smells strange.Updated 5 months ago
Depending on which base and culture you use, the cheese develops a different smell. The freshly fermented cheeses smell mild and slightly sour, while the blue cheese smells spicier. This is nothing to worry about, but a normal part of fermentation. However, if your cheese smells rotten, then this is unfortunately a sign of a bad settlement and a reason to dispose of it.
