I used this culture to make cream cheese and the result was absolutely delicious. I would recommend trying this culture for that application!

Got the packets a few days after ordering it. Haven't tasted the cheese I made with it yet, but it had a great scent to it and I expect that it will taste great. Definitely can't beat the price and you get a good amount as well with it.

I love buttermilk, and this culture makes the BEST! I also recently tried your "new" cream cheese recipe from the website using this starter, and it makes a delicious, tangy, substantial product. I like it even better than the one I usually make using a mesophilic cheese starter culture, as was called for in your original recipes for both uncooked- and cooked-curd cream cheese in "Cheesemaking Made Easy" (Carroll and Carroll) from 1982---a book that has been my guide and inspiration in this realm for many years.

Beautiful buttermilk

Pros:
  • High quality
  • Easy to make
  • Nutriitious
Cons:
From: Atlanta area
Becoming unhappy with commercially produced buttermilk, I got some buttermilk culture from New England Cheesemaking Supply and made our own. The resulting biscuits were light and delicious as were the flapjacks. So not only is it a fabulous ingredient for cooking, but it's easy to make, as well. I shoulda tried it sooner, but from now on, homemade cultured buttermilk is our new staple.

Best buttermilk And butter

Pros:
Cons:
Awesome culture, dual purposed for making both cultured butter from cream and buttermilk from milk. So nice to enjoy both butter and buttermilk without the artificial stabilizers and fillers.

Buttermilk culture

Pros:

From:
For several years, I have been making a few basic cheeses, occasionally experimenting with slight variations introduced on the website; however, I only recently started using the buttermilk culture. My husband is the pancake maker in our family, and he always insists on consistent ingredients. Soon after I had purchased the buttermilk culture, he was headed to town to buy some, I said, "I can make your buttermilk!". (I have a Nubian and a La Mancha milkers) After making it, he said, "this smells really good and has a good texture". I use the low-temp pasteurization method, when I don't just use raw milk, so I always feel better about the products I make and share. No more store-bought buttermilk!

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!

Delicious!

I didn't even think I liked buttermilk. I make the buttermilk in order to prepare cultured butter. The culture worked very well, the butter turned out well, and I can't believe how much I liked the buttermilk!

i love knowing where the milk for my buttermilk comes from (in my case it's the dairy down the road). It takes a little bit of for thought but no actual work. I love this product

Pros:

Cons:
From:
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.

  • delicious
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!

Goat Buttermilk!

I can't have cow's milk but can have goat's milk. This makes the best goat's milk buttermilk ever! I make it with fresh milk OR evaporated milk. I can have buttermilk pancakes without getting sick. Love, love, love this stuff!

Great flavour

Pros:
  • Flavour
Cons:

I use this culture to make quark. I'm still working out some texture issues (since I'm obliged to use pasteurized milk), but the flavour is wonderfully addictive, slightly sour with some sweetness. It never takes me long to finish off a batch!
