My most used starter

As a dairy goat owner my number one beginner cheese I make is chevre and this is my go to starter. It works every time, without fail! I even had a batch that I had a hard time holding the temp with due to the temperature in my house and had to double the resting time. The cheese came out softer than I was used too (probably could have strained longer) but was still awesome! Love this stuff!

Great culture, lousy milk....

Unfortunately, getting other than U.P. goat milk now-a-days is really hard. Even with the addition of Calcium chloride and a rennet dose..... you get a thickened sour cream texture. Nevertheless the flavor of the cheese, from the culture is fantastic!!!

Smooth and easy!!!

The chevre starter culture makes cheesemaking magical. It takes minimal effort and the result is consistently fantastic. I have had goats for 15 years and have been using this culture for just about as long. A "goat" friend turned me on to this product and I have not deviated from New England Cheesemaking Supply's products. Thanks to you, people love the chevre I make!
