Really Makes a Difference

I have used Flora Danica for a couple years now and it really adds flavor to the cheese. Once you try it, you will always want to add it.

Flora Danica starter

I’ve bought numerous cultures from New England Cheese Making Supply Co. and have never been disappointed. They are active and provide the acidity and flavor one would expect. I’ve just used this culture a few days ago, but judging by the pH drop during the fermentation it was doing what it’s suppose to. It will be a while before I can taste the cheese, but I’m sure I won’t be disappointed using their Flora Danica culture.

Tastes like Brie

I just made Brie and salted it yesterday, a little piece came off and I tasted it and it tastes just like Brie. Flora Danica is one of the cultures I used, not sure if that's where the flavor is at, but the combination worked perfectly!
