Cheeses........approximately 2" thick layers of pulp encased in cheesecloth or similiar material. Stack them to fill your bucket. The thinner layers help disperse the weight.

Where did the press break? Post pictures of the failure and maybe we can simply reengineer it with the cheaper materials.

For example.....If they broke along the length use wider boards or double up on the thickness.

If they broke where they bolted to upright place vertical supports under the horizontals that go to ground.
Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol.
Give a man a beer, he'll drink for the day.Teach a man to brew, he'll be drunk the rest of his life.
I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
