Turned out good.

First time it is almost too thick, but I did add the instant nonfat dry milk. I might try without it next time. I really enjoy the flavor of this culture.

The Best!

Although I have ordered and love quite a few of the cultures, this one is my favorite! It is easy to use, works beautifully, and adds a better flavor to my breads and biscuits than store-bought. And I am not the only one that thinks this - quite a few of my friends and neighbors are always wanting more buttermilk. Consequently, this is also the culture that I order most!

Love this product!

I love being able to make buttermilk on my own counter without the thickeners/additives that come in store-bought varieties. It creates thick, delicious buttermilk that makes my pancakes fluffy and salad dressings and dips tangy.

This culture is fantastic.

I ordered this culture because the farm that was my original source of buttermilk went out of business. When I used this stuff in the whole milk I was able to buy from another farm, the overnight result was some of the thickest, tangiest buttermilk I've ever had. This culture is fantastic!
