cheese press Conversion

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
i start Playing more seriously with making cheese so i need a press .
i looked on Google for a press plans . then i got an idea   i will convert a sausage press to a cheese  press. 
Man it worked great .now i got a cheese  press .
this feta cheese is my first test. 
 

 

Replace the container with a 16 cm pvc pipe that i drilled holes on one side a lid with holes and on one side a 15.5 cm plate to press .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This my feta cheese . now it will mature for 7 days .

Great Idea!  That's really thinking outside the stuffer.  How do you measure the amount of pressure you applying?

Cheese might be it's only purpose! After using the beast once I decided that a new 5# Lem would be better. Still waiting on that Lem, the Easter bunny didn't remember...
