Check Pressure Gauge

After shipping the pressure gauge may not read '0' as a result of spring compression during shipping. To re-set the press, simply release and remove the top locks and allow the springs to decompress.

Do not store the press with springs compressed.

The springs and pressure gauge strip are designed to work together for proper pressing weight.

Recognizing Proper Pressing Weight

The proper amount of weight for pressing should be specified in each cheese making recipe. However, this can sometimes lead to over or under pressing, due to the final cheese moisture or fat content of the curds.

Excessive cloudy/milky whey or even butterfat leaking with the draining whey or on the cheese surface when turning, are signs of over pressing. Higher fat cheese requires less weight in early pressing stages when butterfat is still in a liquid state.

Under pressing will result in unconsolidated curds in the final cheese. This can be identified with open curd spaces on the rind or excessive open spaces in the cheese body.

A tight smooth rind with open space in the cheese body can be from applying excessive press too soon. This would seal the surface and trap moisture inside. This is usually accompanied by a cheese leaking moisture in the aging room.
