Description

MM 100 Mesophilic starter culture can be used to make a variety of semi ripened and fresh cheese including Brie, Camembert, Gouda, Edam, Blue, Feta, Havarti and Chevre.

This culture will create a nicely pronounced buttery like flavor and a somewhat more open texture. It contains the same two primary cultures found in MA011 with the addition of diacetylactis, which produces the CO2 and buttery like flavor/aroma.

Because of the added C02, cheese made with this culture will be somewhat more open in texture. In a cheese such as Gouda or Edam, this can provide the typical small round holes.

Critical cheesemaking culture

MM100 is an incredibly versatile culture that is used in many, many cheeses. This MM100 culture has served me well, and is a great price for the amount of milk it will set!

Learning.

We used to use the chevre starter and that works great. After a year I finally got up the nerve to actually make my own and this item works well and does what you expect. Uses a small amount. Add a drop off rennet and you are good to go. More cost effective for me since I make chevre every week.
