Description

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.

My Go To Culture

I have made over 50 batches of cheddar with this culture and it always turns out right! It can be used in place of most Mesophilic cultures with out fail.

MM100

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!

MM100 Starter Culture

I've used this Starter Culture to make about 4 different soft cheeses. I'm very pleased with the results. It gives my cheeses a very good and. interesting flavor. It is easy to use and sets curds well. I give this product two thumbs up
