200MM PRESSED CHEESE HOOP

  • 200mm diameter x 180mm high, no base.
  • Set contains 1 hoop, 1 round disc (base), 1 follower/disc for pressing (one piece).
  • Will require approximately 18 litres of milk but this will vary depending on cheese styles and yields.
  • A strong hoop suitable for all pressed cheese types eg Gouda, Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan.
  • With this hoop set you get a pressed cheese hoop that also doubles as a large Blue Vein, Havarti, Camembert or Brie hoop.
  • Made of heavy duty food grade HDPE.

Hint: For a cloth bound cheese, press cheese is a blue disposable cheese cloth initially then on day 2 add a natural cloth that is cut exactly to the size of the cheese. Dip cloth in an oil or lard and then very lightly press (in the cheese press) the cloth around the cheese for about 1 hour. Don’t press so hard so that it ‘re presses’ the cheese, it is only to get the cloth bound to the cheese.  This method allows the cloth to be easily pulled away from the cheese at maturation, exposing a lovely yellow cheese.
