New England Yellow Cheese Wax

Age and protect your prized homemade cheeses with The New England Cheesemaking Supply Yellow Cheese Wax. One pound of this yellow cheese wax can cover 12-20 cheeses. The use of this yellow wax helps to prevent unwanted mold growth on your cheese while also retaining moisture in the cheese aging process. Before waxing the cheese you want to let it air dry for 2-3 days first and clean the cheese. Apply Yellow Cheese Wax in two thin coats and turn the cheese over once a week to help prevent any moisture settling.

*Brush On 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 210ºF. Wax can be brushed onto a dried and chilled cheese with a natural bristle brush. Two thin coats are preferable to one thick coat. Be sure to fill up any air spaces as mold needs air to grow.
