Moorlands Hard Cheese Mould Making Set makes the perfect additions to the home and small scale cheesemaker. All our cheese making moulds are made from Food Standard Certificate (FSC) durable plastic. Looked after, will last for many, many years. Measurements are in millimetres:- top diameter x bottom diameter x height.

The hard cheese mould set is dishwasher friendly. Would probably recommend an eco setting for the drainage mats. Included in the description is a recommendation for use, soft, semi-soft, hard, semi-hard or suitable for soft and hard.

Soft moulds are usually taller than they are wide. The curds will shrink down during the cheese making process, by as much as two-thirds. So really pack the curds in, once the mould has been lined with cheesecloth. Soft cheese moulds have holes in the sides and base to enable the whey can drain freely. Coming in various shapes and sizes, including beaker, cylindrical, square, conical, pyramid, heart shaped and basket. If the mould you have chosen doesn’t have a base, remember to sit the curd filled mould on a drainage mat.

Hard moulds traditionally have a follower. This sits on top of the curds in the mould, lined again with cheesecloth, before placing in the cheese press. Pressure is applied to the follower, in turn pressing down on the curds. The whey then drains away.

All the moulds on our web site are compatible with either the large or small press. Applying the correct pressure is crucial. So make sure you follow the recommendations according to the recipe.
