|Description Of Components
Add 1/8th teaspoon, for every 2 gallons of milk, at the same time as adding your culture.
When making larger batches, 50 gallons or more, it is economical to add the mold powder to 8 oz of water mixed with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 tsp sugar in an atomizer. Rehydrate your solution for 16 hours before spraying onto the surface of your cheese. When stored in a refrigerator, the solution will keep for up to one week.
We recommend using Mini Measuring Spoons to help in adding the correct amount of starter culture.

If you've done previous natural-rind cheeses, this is like enabling Easy Mode!
I used this with the Manchego mold, cooking a monastery-style washed-rind Alpine tomme. The candidum came in excellently, and the b. Linens also showed up on schedule. MUCH easier than my previous method of trying to create a favorable environment for each mold, yeast, and bacteria in succession. NO blue p. Roqueforti showed up at all! Not even a little bit. Highly recommended if you're making washed-rind cheeses. Great for inoculating the milk, great in a morge, providing you use whey or another liquid containing food for the beneficial critters.
Excellent product for mold-ripened cheese!
Excellent. Easy to measure. Dissolved quickly & evenly...no clumps to mess with. Worked great for Esrom cheese. Can't wait to make more mold-ripened cheese.
