MM 100 Mesophilic starter culture can be used to make a variety of semi ripened and fresh cheese including Brie, Camembert, Gouda, Edam, Blue, Feta, Havarti and Chevre.

This culture will create a nicely pronounced buttery like flavor and a somewhat more open texture. It contains the same two primary cultures found in MA011 with the addition of diacetylactis, which produces the CO2 and buttery like flavor/aroma.

Because of the added C02, cheese made with this culture will be somewhat more open in texture. In a cheese such as Gouda or Edam, this can provide the typical small round holes.

Use approximately 1/2 tsp for 6-12 gallons of milk. This is an estimated guide for usage. Setting temperature, stage of milk and type of cheese will call for specific amounts to reach proper acidification rate.

Reduce culture amount by 25-50% when using raw milk.

Great meso culture

This is a grate starter culture when used properly, that can be used for a variety of cheeses that require it. I've been using it to make Roquefort Blue and Brie with superb results. The package goes a long way to make many pounds of cheese. If you are a lover of good cheese, this culture is a must have.

Very Buttery

This culture is wonderful, I love the buttery flavor. I’ve used it to make goat milk feta and cottage cheese so far. They both taste so good; it really makes the feta great.
