Happy with my Buttermilk Culture!

I’ve used New England products for years. But hadn’t used it starter culture before, it made such a great difference in the texture of my Creole Cream Cheese. I’m from Louisiana and ate Creole Cream Cheese about every week as a child. I’m 70 years old live in Texas last 40 years. Been making my on CCC, but your products the calcium chloride, animal rennet and C-1buttermilk starter cultured made my CCC, taste like I remembered as a child. Thank you, native of Napolenville,LA.

Amazing Buttermilk

This is the best Buttermilk that I ever had. It took 24 hours for the culture to set up, I added 1 TBS of salt to the gallon of 2% and put it in the fridge. You will be very pleased with the result.
