    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 .

  5. Great Idea!  That's really thinking outside the stuffer.  How do you measure the amount of pressure you applying?
     
     
  6. Wow that's a great idea! I haven't made cheese in a while but once I get back in the swing of things I'd like to build a press. Yours looks quite easy to make - thanks for posting this!  [​IMG]

    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...
