Thanks Mal. One block should be plenty for my 12L make then. What do you apply it with? Is it brushed on smeared over with a knife/spatula?

Good old hands my friend - sanitised of course.  A couple of things one is to have the top cloth a touch 1/2 inch wider than the top of the cheese so it drapes (frill the edges so it conforms to the shape easier) the sides and have the side strips the size of the sides.  Also, using your hands it is easier to smooth out the air bubbles.

Have Fun..  8)

Why two layers of cheese cloth and one layer of muslin? Versus three layers of muslin?

I only had enough cheese cloth for two layers.  Typically I would shoot for three layers on tight weave cheese cloth.
