American Neufchatel - Hang & Fridge With Weight To Drain?
« on: May 22, 2012, 12:36:25 PM »
I see two different methods...
one where after it hangs for 12 hrs it goes into the fridge with a pot ontop to wheigh it down  for 12 hrs.
And another that simply goes from hanging to kneading in a bowl and adding salt and flavors.

Will either produce a similar cheese?

Depends on how firm that you want it.
