Description

Geotrichum Candidum (GEO15) mold powder is yeast-like in appearance, with a mild flavor and aroma. With a creamy color and less proteolytic this mold powder has a slightly lower optimum growth temperature than other GEO strains.

This is a great for cheese that requires a smooth surface, washed and mixed rind cheese including Reblochon and a brushed Tomme. This mold powder also works well in bloomy and lactic cheese.

GEO15 does not develop the "wormy" texture, typical of other Geo strains.

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

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