Description

This fine mesh ripening mat for cheese making is used when air drying a variety of cheese, especially soft, mold ripened cheese including Chevre, Brie and Camembert. Because this mat has a fine mesh, it will leave less texture on the cheese surface, and is less likely to pull mold as cheese is flipped when aged.

Using this mat will allow whey to drain and air to circulate when cheese is draining, air drying and aging.

Small Fine mesh cheese mat

Initially I ordered this to serve as a draining mat for a small mold. I quickly found out it is equally useful as a topper for the drying of cheese. I place the cheese on a reed mat, top it with the small fine mesh mat and then cover with a cheese cloth. I also alternate the position to bottom to help air the reed mat.

Quite fine texture, and fits in common Tupperware/Rubbermaid plastic containers

The texture is quite fine, with maybe a millimeter between "strands." Unlike the medium plastic mat, this will fit in a standard 'FreshVent' container, which is my usual container for natural-rind cheeses. It works really well and actually, compared to mats with less-dense texture, it imprints much less texture on the surface of the cheese. I'll be buying more of these.

Great for draining

I’ve used this for Camembert and the results were outstanding. Can’t recommend enough.

Fine Mesh Cheese Mat

I like this cause I can trim to what size fits the container. It is easy to work with.
