Default 6 gallon fermenter for press

Sorry I did not take pictures.

Since a pint of water always ways a pound, and there are 8 pints in a gallon a 6 gallon plastic fermenter plus the weight of the bucket will give you an easy way to measure and get up to 50 lbs of pressure for a hard cheese press.

This balances easily on a 3 lb. plastic press and follower. Set it on top and then fill.

Now I just need to wait for the stirred curd cheddar I made to age.

Hate to sound like a beer guy, but this would be a horrid waste of a prefectly good fermentor.
