I tried it, and I got sick.

Secondly, Penicillin is made from a specific kind of mold found on bread and apparently bleu cheese.

Penecillium roqueforti is the causative agent of blue cheese. It is a cousin of the one used to make penecillin but I do not believe it technically used for anything but blue cheese production. Also suggest you stay away from camembert (Penecilluim camemberti for that one), brie is also generally made Penecillium (either P. candidum or P. camemberti most commonly). Not sure if all members of the Penecillium genus make penecillin or not, think they do, some more than others most likely.

Nope, most molds do not make penecillin, generally ones in the Penecillium family do. It is true that antibiotics come from molds (fungi) or bacteria, but not all make them (most do not).

I don't like camembert, and I only eat brie warm and very little of it at that.

Not much for them myself, think brie is the one of the two I'll eat but I can't remember for sure, generally do not eat that stuff...

I am not certain that it has to be made from goat's milk, think it is more of how they make it that makes it brie and that it can be from cow milk. It is considered pretty fancy usually.

Sounds like diabetes.

My grandpa likes to put stale popcorn in a glass of milk and eat it like cereal. He also eats cheese mold. I think it has to do with him growing up around the Great Depression.
