Got this to try making Provolone

I thought I would share this as I have been making loads of hybrid cultured moz and usually use the single pack Thermophyllic culture. I do the half culture half citric to make sure I get the stretch I am looking for and the flavour that purely citric lacks. I read things about the different Thermos and many said this added a buttery flavour to the cheese. So far the results I got were great. The flavour(I use FRESH goats milk) is more buttery and a bit sweeter than the other culture and it seems to have made the cheese a bit smoother in flavour. I do use Sharp lipase in my moz/prov so putting the cheeses side by side I can tell a difference. I hope this helps others making certain cheeses to choose the profile they want to achieve!

Excellent culture, consistent quality

I make cheese every other day. This culture makes an incredibly consistent pecorino cheese. It's a great basic culture and a must have for your tool box as a cheesemaker.
