Hyn Patty Posted June 8, 2022 Report Share Posted June 8, 2022 All right, a strange question here because I'm not finding anything in searches on this group. I'm interested in home cheese making and traditionally molds were often made of wood or ceramics. If you ever do home cheese making you know the plastic molds for hard cheeses that have to be able to go under a press and under a 100lbs or so of pressure have to be strong. They can't be flimsy, and even buying them in heavy duty plastics isn't cheap. Or you can make your own - but they are ugly. They also need to be easy to clean and food safe. So I looked up making old fashioned cheese molds using ceramics like stoneware and porcelain - glazed or unglazed. Now I'm not a potter who uses a wheel to throw. Love to do that some day but I'm a sculptor who makes molds and does slip casting. I'd like to know if any of you have made cheese molds before? Have you actually /used/ them yourself or know people who do, with more than 50 lbs pressure.? If anyone here has made cheese molds, or knows a good website about making them, I'd love to know. I've found a few websites about making them but not as much as I'd like. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
