Indeed they are for soft cheeses but I have noticed that Tea used the bigger ones for pressing.
I just updated the OP above with my estimate of fluid ounce volumes.
My old standard DairyConnection.com Camembert Hoops are:
- Camembert Hoops = 64 in3 / 36 fluid ounces / 1.08 litre
I can just barely fit a 1 US gallon whole milk soft cheese making batch in two Camembert Hoops. This means to use these for same small 1 US gallon soft cheeses I will need:
- Camembert Hoops = 2
- General Mold = 2
- Ricotta Mold = 5
- Saint Marcellin = 6
- Pyramid Mold = 6
Thus I need to order another 8 of these tiny molds
, unless I mix shapes in each cheese making or use smaller volumes of milk.
Frankly, if these weren't such speciality items, they should be 2 for a buck in the local Dollar store.
