Hard Cheese Mold (Small)
This small hard cheese mold with follower will work with any of our presses and can be use to make up to a two pound cheese, from two gallons of milk. This sturdy mold can handle a pressing weight of up to 100 lbs.
The open bottom on this cheese mold provides ideal drainage. Since this mold does not need the amount of weight, for pressing, as larger cheese molds, it does not need a closed bottom to contain the curd mass.

This works great for my experiments of making a Brie like cheese from kefir. Able to mold a reasonably sized small round from 2 or 3 liters of milk.
Follower needs to be taller
I've used this mold multiple times making 2-pound cheeses. In each case, I needed to put a can inside the follower or, the press would hit the top of the mold sides and thus stop pressing. I have the same problem with the bigger molds. It works great as long as you add something to the top of the follower.
Works very well
This mold works great. Very sturdy. I don't have a press so I just use the appropriate sized dumbells and it works great.
Love the shape and the strength. I have made several hard cheeses in this mold. Works well. Strong.
I’m a beginner cheese maker worked great for my first few batches!
