Description

LH 100 Thermophilc starter culture begins working after pressing and cooling of the cheese. This culture is a major factor in the flavor of mountain style cheese, such as Asiago, Beaufort, and Gruyere.

The primary role of the culture is to break down protein (Proteolysis) in the later stages of aging. This is important for the development of the finished cheese body characteristics and the formation of flavor.

Excellent starter culture

Have used to make several Alpine cheese and had fantastic results. Easy to use and portioned in small packets which makes saving for future use a breeze.

Versatile culture

I used this culture to make Asiago and Parmesan. The Asiago was da bomb (awesome). The Parmesan is still aging. Very versatile, can be used for many higher temp cheeses.

Asiago is delightful

I have been making goat milk cheeses for just a couple of years, using cultures from New England Cheesemaking. I have made cheddars, blues, camembert, tommes, swiss and more. All are great. The two most universally enjoyed are Edam and Asiago. When I have tastings, people always love the asiago. If you get this culture just to make asiago, you will not regret it. It is wonderful when young, and when I manage to keep some back to age it longer, it just keeps getting better.
