1. Coppa by Jason Clarke
Washed wine after 3 weeks. Black pepper, juniper, and thyme then reapplied and cased in a beef bung.
This one took 3.5 months at 10c 75%RH. Literally zero case hardening, which I put down to a new Inkbird humidity controller and the removal of a fan that I previously used. My chamber is small and really doesn’t need a fan, as I check it daily so getting enough movement.
From a post on The Salt Cured Pig. 2019.
