Propionic Shermanii (Swiss) produces the characteristic eyes, aroma and flavor associated with Swiss, Gruyere and Emmenthal style cheese.

This is not an acid producing culture and needs to be used in conjunction with a Thermophilic or Mesophilic culture to convert lactose and produce acid for proper cheese making.

The success of this culture depends on a warm aging period after an initial short ripening period. Details for this process should be included in recipes that call for this culture.

It came...

In order the participate in the give away I have to leave a review. But the cheese I made hasn’t aged enough to cut into it and see how it turned out... so, the P.shermanii came in the mail in a timely fashion and did not cause my cheese to spontaneously combust... yet. I will come back and update this review when I get to taste the gruyere

Propionic Shermanii Just Like Rust

Two in the cave, one Emmentaler and one Jarlsberg. Rust never sleeps and neither does the little Propionic Shermanii, organisms. I'll share my cheese with them for nice little eyes forming in it. The Emmentaler is ready to come out and grow this weekend. New England products are just what you need if you are a cheese head in FL.
