Good product

I liked the product, although my cheese did not turn out as well as I had hoped. This was most likely due to my own inexperience rather than the product. I gave four stars because I had some concern about temperature control during shipping and delivery. The product states that it should be stored in the freezer. When I picked up the product, it was a few days after it had arrived as I work a lot and check the mail infrequently. I was concerned that it was not cold when I received and did not know if it had been kept cold during transport. Was also unsure if this would affect the product and if it was still safe to use if not stored in the freezer. The price was the best I had found for this culture.

Works Great

This culture is great for hard curd stretch cheeses. I have never had an issue with any of New England Cheese Making Supply products and even paying for shipping to Canada the prices are still excellent.

Great Curds

I love the premeasured, easy to store, easy to use cultures I get from New England Cheesemaking Supply Company (NECS Comp). The Thermophilic Starter Culture is one of my favorites.As I have a tendency to eat cheese curds all day. I've tried other supplier's but usually, you have to measure, then weigh to get what you need and deal with non-resealable pouches that just end up making a mess. I stopped buying them and have a small back stock of these now. I love you NECS Company. You've made my weekly cheese making easier and a hit with friends and family.

Works for Raw milk

This has kept good in the freezer for the four years that I had it. It worked great with my raw milk and to make a mother culture.

Works every time

I am a French Canadian living in the US and was missing my curd cheese to make poutine until I came across the recipe for curd cheese on this website. It calls for thermophilic starter and I have been using it for a few years now and have never been disappointed! That is the only one I ever buy and will buy since I have such a positive experience with it and can enjoy my curd cheese when I want it again!
