Description

Geotrichum Candidum (GEO15) mold powder is yeast-like in appearance, with a mild flavor and aroma. With a creamy color and less proteolytic this mold powder has a slightly lower optimum growth temperature than other GEO strains.

This is a great for cheese that requires a smooth surface, washed and mixed rind cheese including Reblochon and a brushed Tomme. This mold powder also works well in bloomy and lactic cheese.

GEO15 does not develop the "wormy" texture, typical of other Geo strains.

Spraying on Cheese Surface
For large batches of cheese, it is more economical to apply the mold powder with an atomizer.

Add the following ingredients to an atomizer (spray bottle) and set in a refrigerator overnight before use.

  • 1/8 tsp Geotrichum candidum
  • 4-8 oz Non-chlorinated water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp sugar

After use, store the atomizer solution in the refrigerator, it will keep for 60 days.

When applying mold powders with an atomizer, the moisture, temperature, and air circulation must be monitored to avoid a wet cheese surface.

Great Quality, Great Price

I had such a strong desire to eat some cheese from my home country that has a very short shelf life, so it can't be exported. My only option was to try to make it myself. I found all necessary ingredients, including Geotrichum Candidum, from the New England Cheese Making Supply Co. I had great success on my third attempt and I can rest easy knowing that I can eat my favorite cheese any time I want now. My thanks to NECMSC for having everything I needed,

Beautiful Camembert ripening

Still waiting to try, being patient this time and using chees wrap to keep moisture. My previous trials were a very dry, still very good

Delicious Saint Marcellin

GEO15 worked great to make Saint Marcellin style cheese using New England CMSC recipe. The white dusting on the surface of the cheese developed earlier than anticipated. The cheese was very tasty.
