Better Butter Muslin
Great quality, and I enjoyed using this after our recent cheese making course!
I have been ordering cheese making supplies from you since 1988. No surprise you always deliver and if not I always get an explanation. Good Service and I highly recommend you for not only your products but educational tools.
Soft, strong - and reusable
I didn't know this kind of "cheesecloth" existed until I saw it on this site -- and I'm so glad I found it. It's very well made and perfect for the task (I'm using it to strain yogurt, but it has a zillion uses). I highly recommend it.
Cut to Size
This Butter Muslin is excellent - just the right amount - one can cut the size needed and still have a usable size left over! Nice fine weave - it made making Mascarpone cheese easy peasy! Easy to cut and wash - does the job admirably and very reasonably priced. Ordering was a cinch and speedily delivered. Thanks very much!
Butter muslin vs cheesecloth
I have been making cheese a few years. My advice is simple. Cheesecloth is a waste of time and money. It is so porous that your curds can slip through with the whey. If you use it, you need to 4 ply it at least. One used, cheesecloth stretches out and becomes worthless. Perhaps it has some use as a wrapper for aging cheeses. Butter muslin I bought is a far superior product. It is strong with the perfect weave density to release whey and contain curds. It can be washed and reused. Much less expensive in long run and much easier to work with. No brainer.
