Just making my first Lancashire using Franco's recipe, its now in the press.
Everything went perfectly with a good clean break (thanks to Jen'sCaCI)
I would like to know how long to press this for and what weight to use)
Also if anyone could give me the link to a Ricotta recipe to use up the wey.

Hi Wallie,

When I make up the Lancashire recipe I press for about three days with a bag containing two 1.5 kilo dumb bells hanging from the arm of the press. I secure the press by a retaining cord looped over a hook in the wall. Not very scientific but it seems to work and the cheese is well compressed at the end of it.

Hope this helps
