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.

Works great. This culture is easy to use and produces a nice flavor in the cheeses I've made so far.

Excellent for chevre making

I love this culture and use it specifically for my chevre. In cooler temps, I find that I need to use a bit more that the recommended amount, it does produce a medium firm curd in a timely manner. My chevre comes out deliciously creamy and mild tasting every time!
