My first cheese-making experience was using mesophilic culture, making both mozzarella and feta with our own cow's milk. That was over ten years ago. Since then I have graduated to making many variety of cheeses and continually to experiment with different herbs, spices, wine, and more. I really enjoy making cheese and have never had any problems with any of their cultures even if they were well past the expiration date. I have always ordered all my cultures for my cheeses (and more) from New England and will continue to do so.
