I struggled some with finding a proper size draining /drying  rack to use while making my first batch of cheddar.  I made due with a square barbecue vegetable cooking rack... it worked ok over the sink , uneven but usable.  However when I wanted to press my cheese...  I made it work but it wasn't easy.  My pressing was done with a pile of weights over my kitchen sink... wife wasn't impressed..uneven rack... (it only toppled once honest... ) Decided to try plan "B" the three 5 gal bucket stacking method. This worked great, but I struggled to find a rack that would fit in the bucket. Today I had the time to look on ebay and found the perfect size rack to use. ( 272138890527 )
