Helped me get the cheese making bug

I'm fairly new to cheese making, about a year or so. This was the first culture I started with and it has given me some great cheeses that my family keeps asking for.

5 star customer service

Works wonderfully! I have goats and when they're giving milk I'm getting 10 gallons (sometimes more) a day. So when I ran out of mesophilic culture I ordered more and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived just 2 days later! Whether you're a beginner or a master cheesemaker this culture is pure and perfect.

Works great

Works very well. No complaints on the product. However, when I purchased the culture and other cheese making items to get started in making cheese, I was charged shipping and handling - no matter what the total was. I was upset about this and refrained from ordering any other supplies from this site again. I am happy to see that there is free shipping and handling for < $45 in the US. Hope you can bring this price down, as once we have the basic equipment we need to make cheese, the cultures, Rennet etc do not cost < $ 45 and your shipping and handling fee is too much.

Good for so many cheeses

I use this culture the most for the cheeses I make. Feta and brie mostly. I never have a problem with it and it gives the final cheeses a good creamy texture. If you don't have the exact mesophilic culture the recipe calls for, this is one you can use. I find it to be pretty universal for a lot of my cheeses.

Mesophilic Starter Culture

This is a wonderful product. Very consistent everytime I use it, I love our Feta cheese and so does everyone else, I can’t keep enough around everyone eats it so fast.
