Great for Monterrey Jack
Posted by Danny L. Weiss on 11th Nov 2012
These followers are great for Monterrey Jack. I use two 7" moulds and followers at a time with a batch of 4 gallons in a 22-quart roasting oven. Works perfect. I add the different weights throughout the process (3 and 10lbs) Great way to make a variety Jack flavored cheeses.
