Description

MD 88 Mesophilic starter culture can be used in combination with other mesophilic cultures to enhance the flavor in a variety of fresh and soft ripened cheese including Brie/Camembert, Chevre and Blue.

This culture is not typically used by itself, because it will not produce enough acid during the cheese making process. Instead, it is used to enhance the cheese by providing a buttery flavor and small eyes in cheese such Edam or Havarti.

Love the MD88

I don't make Gouda without this. I add it to the MA11 for Havarti and Gouda and it makes a wonderful, buttery cheese.

didn't add much flavor

Used this culture when making Havarti, the Havarti was good but not more so then when I made it without this culture.
