We used to use otc buttermilk. It was always thin and excessively sour. We would make one pone of cornbread and throw the rest out... Expensive!



This product made the creamiest buttermilk I have had since made at home as a child. It made the BEST Southern cornbread, and we froze what we would not use immediately.



Wonderful addition to our kitchen!

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.

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 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!

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!

Perfectly balanced sour culture. This buttermilk culture is also versatile. Can be used in combination with other cultures to make some very tasty hard cheeses.

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.

It's sooo.. EASY!

I am new to making my own Buttermilk. I bake artisan breads and goodies, using locally sourced products, including local milk & cream. I use A LOT of BUTTER MILK, - (cornbread, scones, and Irish Soda Breads) and wanted to make my own. When I discovered CheeseMaking I was very excited - when I realized how easy it was to make excellent quality, delicious BUTTER MILK I did my happy, happy dance. Thanks very much - one very happy customer who will be buying lots more BUTTER MILK culture!

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.

From: north central AR
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.

This culture makes a great butter milk. My wife is very fond of butter milk especially with a little salt. Ever since I started making the b.m. she'll drink it again!

Perfect for Non-fat Buttermilk

Pros:
  • Easy%20and%20great%20taste
Cons:
  • none
From: Virginia
I love using this to make buttermilk with skim store-boought milk. I can never find non-fat buttermilk in stores so now I can make my own. My husband is the biscuit maker and he has to have plenty of buttermilk on hand. I use it for all kinds of baking and cooking as well. If I give the culture plenty of time and a little dry milk, I can make two quarts with one packet.
