WOODEN (DEAL) CHEESE PRESS FOR CHEESE MAKING
Handy little cheese press supplied in kit form, with all component parts provided. Assemble by following the simple details in the accompanying diagram to make your press ready for use.
Manufactured from deal, with adjustable lever positions so that the press can accommodate a wide range of cheese moulds. Simply hang weights (not supplied) on the notch provided in the handle to apply a constant pressure and so remove the whey from the curds.
The cheese molds are usually stood on a draining mat to allow the whey access to drain away and a 2lb or 4 lb weight is sufficient to produce a firm dry curd. Obviously different weights and times produce different cheeses - this is what makes cheese making such an interesting and rewarding pastime!
