Great Culture makes Great Cheese!
I’ve been using this starter for Colby and Monterey Jack as well as some cheddar. I’ve absolutely loved the results!
Exactly what it says on the tin (or packet, as the case may be): cheese culture. The only very minor issue is that some of the culture (a very small amount) ended up on the stove instead of in the milk because of how the packet tore, but that's just how it goes, sometimes. Did its job exactly as described and my new cheese is waxed and aging as I type this.
works every time
I have been using this culture for two years. I have made goat milk cheddar, cow cheddar, half goat half cow cheddar, Monterrey Jack and Gouda. I have been very satisfied with the results. Highly recommend
Great for washed curd cheeses
Very happy with the culture, great flavor, easy to use. A little goes a long way.
