Cheese Making Supplies

I get a catalog every year from Lehman's, which is an Amish supply place in Ohio, and they have all kinds of cheese making supplies, in case anyone's interested. Cheese presses, milk cans, etc. Here's the link:

Thanks TF, that rocks!

I just started making mozzarella. Easy, fun, and tastes better than anything I've ever bought!

Sooner or later, I'll need a press to get into the real cheeses. Probably start with Provalone and move on to the speciaties when I have a good grip on the processes for hard cheeses.

Yeah, Lehmans and are both pretty high line. Nice stuff. :) But if you are not ready to start your own cheesemaking business and just want to mess around making a few of your own cheeses, this site has better priced beginning level equipment: . Their entry level cheese press is just $24.95! Plastic, but it gets the job done if you're just starting out. :wink:

In between the Leener's and the Lehman's presses is one from Jack Schmidling at: . I have the $65 one. It works great and is easy to clean and sanitize. A diagram is included on the website and you could probably build one for a lot less.

I'd rather be a bad example than a horrible warning.

I found the Hot Sauce making & Mustard making pages on the Leeners site interesting. I love both!
