Stilton Cheese

Aged two months using my mesophilic culture and it is doing amazing. Won't ever make low temperature cheese without it!!

Great company, reliable products!

The company fulfills and ships orders promptly, and the cheese cultures I've bought from them always work well. I recently bought a replacement for my mesophilic starter that I've been re-culturing for a couple of years. I've also been using the same packet of Penicillium candidum for several years and it still grows strong! Same with the vegetable rennet. If stored properly these products can stay functional long past their expiration. Here is my most recent brie-in-progress which uses all three of the products mentioned above.
