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, wax is also stocked in 5 and 10 pound blocks.
 
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 120ºF. 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 to be reused over and over again.

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

WAXING STORE BOUGHT CHEESES: We have been receiving a lot of questions about waxing store bought cheeses. This is something you can do if you so choose, but we do not recommend it. A store bought cheese is a finished product, meaning it has already been aged to its target aging time. Waxing a store bought cheese will result in an old, off flavored cheese over time. Texture and consistency can also be affected and a runny, smelly liquid may develop.
