If you have not tried this and like buttermilk, you are missing out. This makes the thickest buttermilk. I was so amazed. Now I make all my buttermilk. I use it in baking and in some of my smoothies as I like the tartness it adds. A must try.

These packets are brilliant. Since I started using these, my cheeses have come out with the same consistency, flavor and creaminess EVERY time. For years I struggled with trying to use buttermilk bought in a store (minimum 1 quart). As most recipes call for a cup or so I was storing the buttermilk in my refrigerator, but never knowing if the culture was still good when I went to use it again. I found myself throwing away most of the quart of buttermilk and running to the store for a new quart so I was sure.



Now I live in an area where it is difficult (if not impossible) to even buy fresh buttermilk. When I can, however, the quality, age and activity of the buttermilk is always in question. So these are even more of a life saver. I buy 25 at a time and they never go bad.



These packets have made cheese-making a reality for me again and my family absolutely loves the quality of the final product. THANK YOU New England Cheese Making Supply Company.

I ordered and received my cultures including the one for Buttermilk. I made the first quart according to directions by pasteurizing my Goat milk. Delicious! Since then I have made two more batches with RAW milk and used one packet to a half Gallon. This is also just GREAT! Thanks for the wonderful culture!

I'm new to this cheese making thingy, and I used a combination of meso and Buttermilk in order to create a fresh cheese. And boy is it tasty. Mixed some Herbs de Provence in, and pretty soon I have to make it again since the tub is nearing it's end.

Fresh Cheese Curd from Buttermilk

Cons:
  • addicting
From: Western N.Y.
I purchased this Buttermilk culture after finding a recipe for fresh cheese curd which used it(via Gianaclis Caldwells blog). I have tested the recipe with both mesophilic cultured buttermilk and the buttermilk cultured buttermilk and definitely prefer the flavor of the actual buttermilk culture that comes through in the fresh curds. Lately fresh cheese curds have been my go to cheese making recipe!

I re-cultured the last packet in my order, and it worked fine. Then we lost power for 36 hours and all my precious culture cubes melted ! Still cold, so I inoculated some homo milk . In 12 hours it separated into whey and a very firm curd. Made a tangy cottage cheese, so good I made a few more batches before tossing the poor old bugs.

A Persian friend suggested mixing buttermilk with cardamon and mint, it's great! I'm ordering more today, and some kefir culture , too.

I usually skim cream for 3 days before I make butter. This is plenty of time to get a DS buttermilk packet started. Culturing the cream with the buttermilk makes it so easy to churn and adds a delightful flavour. Then you can bake something nice with the buttermilk to put the butter on.

I love this this starter!

I make my own buttermilk from 3% cow milk UHP- this starter works slowly, but gives a wonderful thick tangy cultured milk product!

I add ussually(for 1 lt of milk ) - 2 tbsp of dry low-fat milk, 1 tsp of inulin, and in last batch i added 2 tsp of honey (something 30 minuts before thickening - when milk is still liquid).

Thank you!

I have made gallons upon gallons of fresh goat milk buttermilk.....I sell it, use as gifts, and use in baking myself for my family. The compliments and requests I get for buttermilk made from this culture is overwhelming. You can also use it to reculture the next batch.....so delicious, and indescribably incredible in baking results.

It Works!

I was given this packet by Tess Schaffner from Off The Vine Market here in Williamsburg. We used milk from Trickling Springs Creamery purchased at the market and frankly were a bit skeptical if this would work. After following the instructions and waiting the 24 hour period, my mother and grandmother and I found the glass jar of milk and transformed into actual buttermilk. We used Creamline Milk and we think because of this, it gave the milk it's nice thick appearance. My grandmother said it tastes like the buttermilk of her childhood.

Like grandmother used to make

My husband keeps track of our culture stock, so he can make sure he always has fresh buttermilk. He swears it is the only proper buttermilk he has had in over fifty years. I tend to culture already souring milk, as he likes a strong buttermilk flavor.

I used the buttermilk culture to make the buttermilk for my garlic ranch dressing. It did a wonderful job. Love the dressing, love being able to use my own fresh raw cow's milk for yet another product.

makes the best buttermilk ever for recipes

Pros:
  • quality
Cons:
From:
The flavor of the buttermilk produced with this culture and some farm fresh pasteurized Jersey lowfat milk is excellent, and tastes so much fresher than storebought. Mine comes out very thick; I thought I would have to add more to biscuit recipes to add more liquid but strangely I do not. It's great in buttermilk ranch style salad dressings as well.
