Weigh in day. I shoot for every seven days. Loss has slowed down and mold is still white. All good I think.







Couple weight tags.





This one is from my big pepperoni.

Big pepperoni finally done. Dried for almost 2 months. Vac sealed and gonna slice as needed and revac seal.



Thin slice. Held together great.





Added a bressola a few days ago. Got some nice mold growth so far.



Looks like I have room for something else now.
