A pressing question from a noob
« on: February 15, 2014, 09:29:13 PM »
Just a question as to if you can lightly press a cam rather than flipping. There must be a reason, but how do they go if you lightly press rather than flip

No. Flipping helps even moisture distribution and equalizes the pH gradients. Pressing without flipping works differently for a cheese that moist. It wouldn't be consistent throughout.
