Jeff, sorry to be a pain with the questions.  I'm just about to start this cheese and have read through the recipe a few times.

When the curds are placed in a cloth, in the tilted pot with a 2lt jug of water on top, is there any reason why this is done in the pot and could this be done in the press? 



The years have been kind to me, it's the weekends that done the damage.

I suppose you could do it in the press.  If it's in the pot, you can put the pot in a sink with some warm water to keep the curds a bit warmer.  That will help when you later press them.  Other than that, no reason you can't use the press.

No problem.  Don't forget to start a thread on your make and post your notes and photos, etc.  Will be useful if you have questions later, and also for those who find the boards in the future (and those of us here now).
