What is a cheese net?

The cheese net (or cheesecloth) is placed in the cheese mold. The cheese net ensures that redundant whey can leave the cheese during pressing. It also ensures a good crust. A good crust is important to protect the cheese and ensures proper ripening.

You buy a cheese net in combination with a cheese mold and follower (press lid).

You can buy a cheese net at Leven van het land.
