Cream Cheese

Used to make homemade cream cheese. I used cream from our Jersey Cow. Sterilized the cream and added the culture. Tastes great.

Best Cottage Cheese Ever

My cottage cheese is made with local, raw milk, Fresh Starter Culture (item# C3) and a wee bit of Flora Danica (item # C11). It smells heavenly and tastes great. The grandkids love it!

Great Starter Culture

Really good culture and bacteria spectrum. Produces a predicted amount of acidity (lactic acid) and a subtle aromatic quality. I find it deal for some basic cheeses fresh cheese, but also works well with a thermophilic culture if you need to age some farmhouse style cheese.
