Spraying on Cheese Surface
For large batches of cheese, it is more economical to apply the mold powder with an atomizer.

Add the following ingredients to an atomizer (spray bottle) and set in a refrigerator overnight before use.

  • 1/8 tsp Geotrichum candidum
  • 4-8 oz Non-chlorinated water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp sugar

After use, store the atomizer solution in the refrigerator, it will keep for 60 days.

When applying mold powders with an atomizer, the moisture, temperature, and air circulation must be monitored to avoid a wet cheese surface.

Ash goat cheese

The geotrichum candidum. Helped to keep the rind on the goat cheese with ash. I am hopeful it will taste as good as it looks. I used it with a penicillin inoculate. Yea for goat cheese.

Geotrichum Candidum (GEO13)

Have tried both the 13 and the 15. Both are great; however, the 13 gives a slightly milder flavour. The 13 produced a nutty and earthy mould, and an awesome, bright white rind. Loved it! Haven’t tried the 17 yet!
