Great for Butterkase!

As part of the culture set used in butterkase cheese, this buttermilk starter is great. My cheese turned out rich and delicious due to the addition of buttermilk. My husband pronounced it a winner! As a fairly new cheese maker, I can confidently make this butterkase and know that it will produce a wonderfully creamy cheese in a fairly short period of time.

Yum!

Much better than anything you'll find at the store. I'm going to keep this thing going. Great for biscuits and pancakes.

If You Only Buy One Culture

NE Cheese Buttermilk Culture is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I have used it for making cultured butter, buttermilk, and cottage cheese so far. It’s very versatile and tastes great.
