LH 100 Thermophilc starter culture begins working after pressing and cooling of the cheese. This culture is a major factor in the flavor of mountain style cheese, such as Asiago, Beaufort, and Gruyere.

The primary role of the culture is to break down protein (Proteolysis) in the later stages of aging. This is important for the development of the finished cheese body characteristics and the formation of flavor.

Use approximately 1/2 tsp for 6-12 gallons of milk. This is an estimated guide for usage. Setting temperature, stage of milk and type of cheese will call for specific amounts to reach proper acidification rate.

Reduce culture amount by 25-50% when using raw milk.

Love this culture!

I love the fact that this culture has the helivictus bacteria in it. I’ve started using it in my Cheddar and Gouda in addition with the regular mm100 and MA11. It matures faster with good sharpness of flavor.

Excellent starter culture

Have used to make several Alpine cheese and had fantastic results. Easy to use and portioned in small packets which makes saving for future use a breeze.

Versatile culture

I used this culture to make Asiago and Parmesan. The Asiago was da bomb (awesome). The Parmesan is still aging. Very versatile, can be used for many higher temp cheeses.
