I’m just about to purchase a few more pieces of equipment to take a next step in my cheese making – basic mold/followers being some of the stuff.
I have a 16 qt stock pot and was thinking I could (eventually) be making (2) pound and a half to two pound wheels. I’d build one press if I could stack molds – or make 2 if it needs to go that way.
Does anyone have a good recommendation for molds/followers to start out with. (obviously I’m in US…) I’ve seen several of Mr. Gavin’s videos – it seems he uses a 6 to 7 inch mold – seems like a decent size….
I appreciate your help and advice.Tom MoranGuest
Pete, this is not cheap advice but I have found the kadova molds to give the best rind finish and they can be stacked. I would like to find something as good and much cheaper but I find the low end stuff that are perforated bowls with a follower and then all the way up to kadova. If you find a good alternative please pass it on
