Description

TA 61 Thermophilic starter culture can be used to make a variety of hard Italian and Swiss style cheese including Parmesan, Romano, Mozzarella, Provolone, Emmenthaler/Swiss.

The active Temperature range for this culture is 68-125°F with optimum acid production at 104-108°F.

Many of the above suggested cheeses are heated to around 122-128°F, this culture will have little to no acid produced at these high temperatures. Although this culture does not thrive in these hot temperatures, it survives quite well. As the temperature of the cooling cheese falls into the cultures optimum temperature range it begins proper acid production.

Great Starter

It only takes a pinch and the pouch keeps a very long time if kept in the freezer.

Great so far

I used my TA 61 in a jarlsberg a few days ago and things seem to be working well so far.

Works every time!

The Thermophilic Starter Culture works every time for making top quality hard cheeses with our farm produced raw milk! It's a smile in a bag!

Wonderful sheep mozzarella

Made some sheep mozzarella and it worked out much better than other cultures, some difference on the recipe compared to cows milk. 1/4 teaspoon for 6 skimmed gallons of sheep milk, 40 drops of single strength animal renet.
