There are not enough holes for the whey to drain properly which led to my cheese sitting in liquid during pressing. Also, the follower is so tight my cheese cloth didn’t fit. Will have to drill more holes and sand down the follower for it to be usable. Meanwhile my 5 gallon Emmentaler is ruined.
This mold is very sturdy with a followed that fits well, What you would expect in a large mold.
I purchased 2 of these thinking they were a bit smaller. I did end up using one and fell in love with it! The follower fits perfectly…. Actually almost too perfect! Not a lot of room for cheesecloth around the sides, so just wrap on top then press! LOVING the size of the cheese wheel I get from this!
Really nice to finally get a large mold with a bottom. This is a very sturdy mold and the follower fits perfect with this one.
It is a good size and very sturdy. I look forward to my next batch of cheese.
