Ask RiotACT: Where can I get cheesecloth in Canberra?

Hi Rioters,

Asking on behalf of a mate who’s keen to make his own cheese (apparently it’s not as difficult as I thought, but what would I know? I only know how to eat it).

He’s been on the hunt for cheesecloth in Canberra but has so far been unsuccessful. A few recommendations would be much appreciated.

Help a budding cheesemaker out?

Thank you in advance!

Chux also works well.

It’s just muslin. Look for plain muslin at any of the fabric stores mentioned.

My wife got some at Lincraft last week.

I made paneer for the first time the other day and used a pillow slip. Worked a treat.

Beer butts and brew Casey for all cheesemaking needs

Spotlight, Lincraft & essential ingredient

Lincraft ( fabric stores) should have it.

Essential Ingredient?

Salvos - old 70s dresses.

Try the Essential Ingredient in Kingston. I was able to find rennent there to make mozzarella, and they had a small collection of other cheesemaking equipment. It took me a long time to track that down, so cheesemaking doesn’t seem that popular in Canberra.
