Yes, the cheese truly tastes like Swiss. I was a little disappointed that while on the packet it says to use 1/16 tsp per gallon of milk, the recipe I uses calls for much more than that.

A very little goes a long way, and the rest keeps for a long time in the freezer. It helps to dissolve it really well, and early-age your cheese in the right temps to kick off eye formation.

Really works!

I just opened my first Swiss, and it tastes wonderful! So satisfying making your own "fancy" cheeses.

I had previously tried to extract Emmental cheese culture, but this component is much simpler and more efficient! The cheese is creamy and nicely shine in the eyes.

The Eyes have it!

I have been using this in my Swiss and Jarlsberg with huge success! The last couple Swiss wheels have had tons of eyes, even though my culture is almost 2 yrs old. Always keep it in the freezer.

Yum!!

Along with the Home Cheese Making book, I've used this to make Emmental twice and it's turned out beautifully both times. By far my favorite and most successful of the hard cheeses I've made in my 2 years of cheese making experience so far!
