Use approximately 1/4 tsp for 1-2 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.

The Best Mozzzarella

I have tried all different cultures in my quest for making high quality mozzarella. This culture by far is the best, everyone who tastes my cheese made from this culture loves it, they all say I should sell my product. Get a quality digital ph meter to stay on top of the acid formation. Can happen faster than you realize. I just ordered more.
