What's the best mold ~2lb semi-hard to hard cheeses?
« on: April 03, 2013, 06:46:44 PM »
All sites including local cheese supply seem to have a gap in mold sizes for 2lb hard cheeses. 1lb is too small for me and I'd rather have 2lbs for either a one for a 2 gallon make or two for a 4 gallons make.

I just made a 2lb caerphilly in a 4.5" mold and I had to toss some curd. :( It's also rather tall and now sagging a bit while drying.

Maybe the answer isn't that simple but I thought I'd ask first.

For 2 gallon makes, there is a small gouda mold that has a 2 lb capacity that works well for me. There is also a small tomme mold that has a 2 lb. capacity that would be equally good.
