What exactly does the unit mean?
The unit of measurement is a formal cheesemaking unit of measurement provided by the manufacturer. Rather than measuring the culture packets by volume, this measurement reflects the activity level of the cultures within the packet. Due to variations across cheese recipes, this measurement scale does not indicate the number of doses or batches contained within a packet. Be sure to always use the amount of culture recommended in your specific recipe.

πŸ˜‹ flavor

After years of not making cheese I have once again dived in for homemade cheese.
Danica gives that subtle but divine flavor. For me it’s a must have. I would encourage anyone to give it a try.

When placing my order I clicked on "Free Shipping" but your system messed up and charged me for it -I'm not a happy camper, Schackmann

The cultures materials are high quality. However, you should include a recipe with it, such as you do with most of your other cultures. I couldn't easily find a recipe on your website either. Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this.
