Grilled cheese sandwiches. Melted cheese dips. Refrigerated fruit salad with cheese. Pizza topped with Mozzarella cheese. Cheeseburger. Cheesedogs. Egg and cheese omelet. All these are just but few of the magic that you could experience because of cheese! Everyday people consume so much cheese that buying by bulk has become a fad. Cheese presses all over the world are busy every minute of the day.

Do-it-yourself (DIY) Cheese

If you want to save on money and create your own unique taste of cheese, better buy a cheese press and make your cheese at home. Cheese making is easy as one-two-three. The steps are convenient and very simple to perform.

1) Pasteurize milk at a temperature of 161 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Ripen the pasteurized milk by utilizing culture starters
3) Let the milk protein turn into a solid mass by adding rennets
4) Cut the coagulated mass or curd to release the trapped whey
5) Force out the moisture that is in the curd to firm it up
6) Place the cheese in a cheesecloth bag and hang it to remove the whey
7) Sprinkle salt on the surface of the cheese
8) Remove the remaining whey from the cheese by using a cheese press
9) Let the cheese dry in room temperature
10) Place the dried cheese inside a wax mold and be sure that it is air tight
11) Leave it alone and let it age
