Hint: For a cloth bound cheese, press cheese is a blue disposable cheese cloth initially then on day 2 add a natural cloth that is cut exactly to the size of the cheese. Dip cloth in an oil or lard and then very lightly press (in the cheese press) the cloth around the cheese for about 1 hour. Don’t press so hard so that it ‘re presses’ the cheese, it is only to get the cloth bound to the cheese.  This method allows the cloth to be easily pulled away from the cheese at maturation, exposing a lovely yellow cheese.
