great starter

This ferment is very suitable for my soft cheeses, it gives a creamy taste with a hint of aftertaste, I also add it when doing curd baked milk. Simple and easy to use.

Wonderful product!

I purchase this starter culture to make cream cheese to demonstrate fermentation during the biology class I teach. I had never made my own cheese before, but I thought I would try it, because you can make cream cheese at room temperature with very litte preparation ahead of time. The starter culture worked perfectly and produced some flavorful, tangy cream cheese. I highly recommend this product for use in a biology lab or at home. I am inspired to try my hand at some more challenging cheeses for my own consumption.
