Nice job Jim, the inside looks a lot like the Cambozola I made. A cheese for you.

The mold is a home made 6 inch mold , it is made from a can that originally held mandarin oranges in syrup , I cut out both ends and made a wooden base  it is coated inside with something to resist  corrosion.

I used the 2 gallon recipe.

So far , all of my cheese have been made in this same mold , I may buy some different ones someday , but so far , this works for me.

Cheers , Jim.

Ah so, kudos for keeping it simple, eh?  Have to try that one, maybe 6 inch PVC.  It appears you did not need any holes in the sides for this one at least.  No pressing and just turning I suppose it drains out from the bottom rim pretty well.  Thanks for the great tip!
