Mesophilic Starter Culture

I have found Mesophilic Starter Culture to be so conveniently packaged and easy to use. The resulting cheese turns out very good. I will use Mesophilic Starter Culture in future recipes, as well. Great product.

Couldn't be easier

This culture is super easy for a beginner to work with. This culture works extremely well with any of the recipes available here, I made my first cheddar using it. It's super easy to use since it's direct set, you just have to add it to the warmed milk and stir in. Also, I've had packets of this culture in my freezer for years that still ripen the milk perfectly. If you're just getting started, and don't want to worry about selecting cultures and prepping them yourself, you can't go wrong with this.

Foolproof starter culture

Cheesemaking's basic mesophilic starter culture packets made it so easy to try my hand at slightly more advanced cheeses. It’s sort of an all purpose culture, making it hard to go wrong! I’ve used it in a variety of low temperature cheese styles and it always behaves predictably and with delicious results. A go-to for cheesemakers, especially if you’re just getting into it and feeling a little overwhelmed by the huge variety of culture options available.
