  1. I haven't used yet

    Posted by Becky on 6th Mar 2018

    The Cheesemaker has great customer service! Mine arrived a few days late but it got here. I can't wait to use it. Though the mesh seems to tightly woven to let any moisture out but I'm sure it will. Note from thecheesemaker: this FDA approved draining bag is great to drain yogurt for Greek yogurt or drain Ricotta to thicken.

    The reason for my purchase .... (I wish I could be making cheese where I live) .... I collected many acorns in deep woods near my home, and leached out the ground nuts. Lots of leaching involved. I used the bags to press the water out. Perfect! Thank you.
