MM 100 Mesophilic Starter Culture
MM 100 Mesophilic starter culture can be used to make a variety of semi ripened and fresh cheese including Brie, Camembert, Gouda, Edam, Blue, Feta, Havarti and Chevre.
This culture will create a nicely pronounced buttery like flavor and a somewhat more open texture. It contains the same two primary cultures found in MA011 with the addition of diacetylactis, which produces the CO2 and buttery like flavor/aroma.
Because of the added C02, cheese made with this culture will be somewhat more open in texture. In a cheese such as Gouda or Edam, this can provide the typical small round holes.

MM100 Mesophilic starter culture
Very Happy ,Works great
This is my go-to mesophilic culture. I use it in almost all my cheeses except chevre (prefer flora danica for that). MM100 is a fine powder that dissolves very well, and can be used in a great variety of cheeses.
MM100 - great value, great culture
I've been a cheesemaker for five years, and this is one of my staple cultures. I used to buy the C101 mesopholic in individual doses (the 5-pack) but it was expensive to buy it in such small quantities. I stuck with that for a long time because I was used to it, but in an effort to save money I decided to try the MM100 - it is SO much more economical, and it has been an easy transition from C101 to MM100. I highly recommend this culture!
