What Our Customers Are Saying
Have not tried it yet.
The culture works perfect, but it was a little hard to find instructions on how to use it - the included guide and links do not say if the culture is thermophilic or mesophilic, so I had to look through posted recipes and other products to find something that uses this culture. It fermented great at room temperature and the milk was ready for cheesemaking 24-48 hours after inoculation (each batch I made was slightly different). I use it for farmers cheese, and it has a mild and creamy taste, exactly what I wanted.
I've been using the fresh cheese culture to make COTTAGE CHEESE with RAW milk. It's been working like a champ. The taste is fresh and consistent every time. My only request would be to bottle it in a bulk package and lower the price a bit. Otherwise it's very easy to do.
I used this for the first time last evening and the milk is ready to drain for cheese. I will probably just add juice concentrate and freeze it for sherbet.
My wife had a culture from her friend that we kept reusing. Then, one sunny day i accidentally didn't put some culture aside and used all of it for cottage cheese. I looked online for a similar product and found this.
This culture is very similar to what we used. It is very easy to make cheese.
