Cheese Wax - A formulation of paraffin, microcrystalline wax and food grade coloring

Cheese wax will prevent unwanted mold and retain moisture when aging cheese. This wax is pliable and will not become brittle as will pure paraffin wax.
  • Red
  • Pliable
  • Reusable - Wax can be strained through Butter Muslin and reused
  • 1 pound of wax will wax 12-20 cheeses when brushed on
  • When ready to eat the cheese, simply peel off the wax
  • Will keep indefinitely if stored in cool place, away from any high heat.
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 (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.
