The amount of character (flavor, texture) can be customized by increasing or decreasing the setting time and/or temperature.

This is a great multi product culture. We used it for butter milk, milk, and portsault just to name a few. You get a lot out of this packet.
I've really enjoyed the fresh buttermilk I made with your culture. Delicious and easy!
This is one of the easiest recipes I have ever used, and the best buttermilk in the world. Bar none
I have been using this for years. Orders are promptly shipped. I haven't had any buttermilk that is better than what this culture makes. I also use the buttermilk from this culture to regularly make a white farmer cheese with whole milk and Creme Fraiche with heavy whipping cream. Wonderful stuff.
Great for making quark
Quark is an ingredient used by Germans for making a particular type of cheesecake and is difficult to source locally. I read about making it using the buttermilk culture and since I have access to raw milk I decided to try it. It worked very well and I made enough to share with a friend. The results were delicious!
