I have developed a hatred for cheesecloth.
I cleaned out my first several cheese cloths. It took me about an hour each. Given that they cost about 1.50/each, and I think my time is worth more than 1.50/hour, I have decided to only use new ones.
I am also converting to SS mesh for draining and a medium to fine food grade plastic mesh for pressing. Thereby getting rid of the need for cheese cloth.
