Brevibacterium Linens (red mold) is used in making surface-ripened or interior mold-ripened cheeses such as Brick, Limburger and Muenster. It develops rapidly, ensures a good ripening, and produces flavor.

This can be added to the milk at the beginning of the process as well as used in the wash (needs re-hydrating for 8-12 hrs in light salt wash) during the ripening process for washed rind cheeses. The characteristic yellow to orange color may take 15-20 days to develop.

Add 1/16th teaspoon, for every 2 gallons of milk, at the same time as adding your culture.

When making larger batches, 50 gallons or more, it is economical to add the mold powder to 1 quart water mixed with 1/2 teaspoon salt in an atomizer. Rehydrate your solution for 16 hours before spraying onto the surface of your cheese. When stored in a refrigerator, the solution will keep for up to one week.

We recommend using Mini Measuring Spoons to help in adding the correct amount of starter culture.
