Wonderful cultures!

I’ve been making cheese for a few years now, buying raw grass-fed milk from a local Amish farm. My very favorite is Manchego from the Home Cheese Making book by Ricki. It uses both mesophilic and thermophilic cultures and can be aged for different lengths of time for a variety of nuances. All the cultures I have ordered from NE Cheese are fresh and do their jobs quite well. I also buy all my other cheesemaking supplies here and am always happy with my orders. The photo I am including shows three aging Manchego cheeses that I have bandaged using coconut oil (a total experiment!). They are getting a nice layer of mold and they smell SO pungent and good! We ate one wheel over the holidays that was only aged two weeks and it was awesome. Can’t wait to try these in a few months.

Adventure in a little packet!

We made cheese with visiting family this Christmas and Hanukkah. It worked beautifully in our Skyr, our Bauerhaus cheese, too. We are sending some home with our kids. The little packets that are premeasured make the process more precise and control messiness when a 2 1/2 year old grandchild wants in on the adventure!

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.
