How long can it sit out?
Until it "sweats"?
Until it forms it's own rind from drying out?
Until it grows a completely new kind of mold?

1/2 a day...maybe? Aged cheeses will get less weird out tho. Unpasteurized soft ones....ugly. Bought some Livarot on a trip, and left it in a hotel room for a day...fucking green cartoon fumes poured out the door when I returned that eve. It went promptly out to the alley dumpster...but the funk in the room did not die.

Viva Velveeta, indeed.

But run-of-the-mill, sharp, store bought, shredded cheddar.

I'm pretty sure it's pasteurized.

Depends on the cheese really.

A few hours sitting out at least. Such cheese are processed enough for a long shelf life. If it's moldy toss it away (unless you're seriously in need of a cheese fix-then just whittle the moldy and crusty parts away til you find that cheese pay dirt)

it has a very short room-temperature life. many variables factor in to how long to leave it out... but really... give it 30 minutes before eating and then use it all - or put back the unused portion in the fridge.

you are not dealing with a quality product meant to sit out and bloom....
