Cellophane Cheese Wrap (Soft or Mold Ripened)

I bought this because I wanted a wrap for my aged goat cheeses, when transferring from cave to lower temp refrigeration to finish aging. But it's not breathable at all, and condensation is clearly visible through the wrap even though these cheeses were quite thoroughly dried. For sure it will lead to slime/slipskin. So, a total waste of $ for me. Looks pretty, but unusable.
I bought more than 1000 sheets of these, you can say I love this one :) Good for my bloomy rind cheeses and they look fancy in it.
The clear wrap is very nice for wrapping Camembert at about day 14 after the make. By then it has a nice white mold developed, and with the wrap you can watch it age in the regular refrigerator. The wrap is easy to use, but be careful what size you order. I ordered the small size but needed the larger size. The problem was solved by taping two sheets together, but it would look nicer with the right size. It is a good product.
I make a lot of ripened chevre . This wrap works great for that. The mold grows well and is also contained to only that cheese. I used to use plastic boxes and had to do a lot of maintenance adjusting humidity and cleaning the boxes. I also had to be careful while flipping the cheese over. Now i can see whats going on thru the wrapper . Flip them over without any fuss and i have more room for other cheeses without the box in the "cave".
