Description

Details

Cheese Wax is especially made for coating cheeses. It helps prevent unwanted mold growth while retaining moisture in the aging cheese. This wax is pliable and will not become brittle as will pure paraffin wax.

Contains: A formulation of paraffin and microcrystalline wax food grade coloring

Yield: One pound will wax approximately 12-20 cheeses when brushed on. If dipping method is used you will need at least a 5 pound block. If you are waxing all the time 10 pounds will save you some money. We also offer a box of 60 pounds that is unwrapped and in bulk form.

Directions: It is safest to melt wax in a double boiler so that it is not subject to direct flame. Never leave melting wax unattended. Wax can explode at high temperatures. Heat wax to 120¼F. Wax can be brushed onto a dried and chilled cheese with a natural bristle brush (anything synthetic will melt) or you can very carefully dip your cheese into the wax pot one side at a time (it can get very slippery). Two thin coats are preferable to one thick coat. Be sure to fill up any air spaces as mold needs air to grow.

When you are ready to eat your cheese the wax is simply peeled off and can be strained through Butter Muslin (U2) to be reused over and over again.

Storage: Store in cool place away from any high heat. Will keep indefinitely.
