    Q: Last night I made a batch of Alpine-style cheese. After a short time in the press I found that the cheese cloth was sticking to the cheese. What would cause this to happen?

    A: This can be a problem with this type of cheese due to serious acid production in the mold. This causes the curd to shrink which is turn causes the cheesecloth to be pulled into the curd. The best solution to this problem is to wet the cloth with a weak brine, this added salt should slow acid production near the rind.
    Other causes of this problem are too much pressure to start with and not turning the curds soon enough. If you do have this problem, the best approach is to scrape the cloth slightly before pulling it off where it is sticking, you do not want to tear the rind.

    If you have to use cheesecloth....

    If you have to use cheesecloth, then this is a good product. It has a tighter weave than most and comes in a good quantity for home cheesemaking. I don't like fibers getting in my product when I have to cut the fabric and I'm not a fan of having to use a disposable product, so at this point I've resorted to molds with micromesh and nylon draining bags.

    Perfect!

    I love this product because it is relatively inexpensive. I usually use it as a mold liner. I usually cut the 2 yard length into three pieces after sterilization. It's lightweight enough to double up in the mold, and still have enough room for the follower. It's inexpensive enough that if you are making a fine-curd cheese and cannot wash the curd out of the weave it's no skin off your back to throw it out.



    Be sure that if you do cut the cheesecloth into pieces that you watch for strands embedding into your cheese from the raw edge of the fabric.

    Good product

    Works well, but smells weird out of the package. Make sure to wash/sterilize first.

    True cheesecloth

    I don't like to have anything for one use. This cheesecloth is soft and yet holds up to many washings. I use it for straining anything I need that is delicate, besides cheese and yogurt. I fold it up and it is as good as new after washing 4 times so far. It makes the store bought look like a rag.

    A necessity

    Good muslin and cheesecloth is hard to find. We can't have enough of this! The cloth on this site is perfect for cheesemaking.

    A must for cheese-making.

    This is a very good quality cheese cloth at a good price. When I am milking my cow, I sometimes make up to 10+ pounds of cheese per week and I am able to reuse the same cloth over and over. After each use I hand wash then boil to sanitize when I make the next batch.

    Great Quality!

    We make lots of colby cheese. This cheese cloth is great quality! It holds up much better than the cheep "cheesecloth" that's easy to find in random stores.

    Excellent product

    I started off using home made stuff for cheese cloth such as sheer curtains. They worked but nowhere nearly as well as your cheese cloth which handles so much better, washes better and makes everything go more smoothly. Great product!

    Great cloth!

    I made cheese today from my Brown Swiss cow, after I had already skimmed most of the fat off for butter. I expected yield to be down a lot since I had taken the fat, but for the first time, I used the cheese cloth I had bought from you instead of the store bought cheesecloth. I actually had MORE cheese curds than before! Your cheese cloth is far and away so much better than what I could get elsewhere! Thank you very much.
