I have used Mesophilic Starter Culture four times so far and it works perfectly every time--you can count on it. I store it along with my other cultures (yogurt Y5 and Thermophilic Starter Culture, which are also reliable) in the freezer and use a half packet for two gallons of raw milk (storing the other half in the freezer works fine). NECSC microbiologicals are highly recommended!
I’ve only just started cheesemaking, but find this mesophilic starter works great for me. So far, I’ve made goat milk Gouda and a Colby using this starter.
Great and consistent. Makes it easy to match supplies with recipes.
I love that this product is premeasured. It's convenient and gives me confidence that my product will be good.
