Use approximately 1/8 tsp for 1-2 gallons of milk. This is an estimated guide for usage. Setting temperature, stage of milk and type of cheese will call for specific amounts to reach proper acidification rate.

Reduce culture amount by 25-50% when using raw milk.

Nice flavor to my feta

I used this starter to finally getting around to making some feta. The flavor was good for my first try. I am sure as I work on the process it will be even better. I will buy this again.

Fantastic Feta

I’ve made a few two gallon batches from pasteurized cows milk with the MT1 culture, each ones in a different storage brine recipe. I haven’t really had a chance to dig into them yet as they’re all still aging but from my test nibbles I can tell it produces the classic Greek Feta flavor I was looking for so its exactly what I was after when I chose the culture. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to make Feta.

Lovely texture and flavor

Nice, firm texture to curd after draining, and great flavor. I usually use MM100 which is good, but this is great! Very glad I decided to give this a go for my goat milk feta.

Feta culture

I have been using this to make goat milk counter yogurt. Turns out mild flavored, drinkable yogurt. All cultures and advise has been perfect from New England cheese making co.
