I LOVE this mold! I love the open bottom and great size of this particular mold. Not only just for blues, it will press any hard cheese, but it's a must for a beautiful Stilton. I use a small food grade bucket to place my Stilton in to create a mini cave, of course turning daily, and that is placed in my cheese cave/wine cooler. It has worked wonderful! Thank you for wonderful products, recipes and tips for all of us home cheesemakers!
I made two beautiful blue cheeses with this mold, but how much blue cheese do I need? I also use it for a type of chèvre I make with one package of mesophillic starter. 12 hours at 86 degrees, hanging for another 12 hours and then I put it in the mold with 25 lbs of ankle weights for 8 hours to help it drain. The results are excellent with a spreadable cheese with a very nice bite to it. I spread it on sour dough toast. We also use it when a recipe calls for sour cream.
Good sturdy product - but the cheese comes out at 8 dia x 1 1/2" which is too wide for my ripening box!! If using for a 2 gallon recipe recommend using the M222 mold that will fit very nicely in a 7x12" plastic box. Will be ordering an M222 to give me a 6" dia x 2 1/2" cheese. Check your ripening box before ordering this product!
I ordered this mold to adapt and use for brie because of its diameter. I cut a 1 1/2 in. ring off the bottom of the mold and I re-attached that shallow ring to the large upper piece with a wide rubber band cut from an inner tube. When the brie curd drained down into the bottom 1 1/2 in. of the combined pieces, I simply removed the top piece and was able to easily handle the 1 1/2 in. cheese.
I bought this recently but have not had the chance to use it yet. Just wanted to say that it is much bigger than I thought it would be. Just make sure you check the measurements before ordering.
