As I just started making cheese I cannot judge yet what the quality of the cultures is. I do feel that the price is good for 15 cultures for 18 dollars.

This sampler is a great choice for making a variety of hard cheeses and is cheaper than buying 5 packs of each culture individually.

The Hard Cheese sample pack is great. It gives us 5 packets each of mesophilic, thermophilic and buttermilk culture which is wonderful for those of us making hard cheeses or for those just getting into hard cheeses. Much cheaper buying it this way than individually.

nice selections

I haven't made so many cheeses that I'm great at it. but I love doing it. With this Hard cheese Sample pack I can browse thru your great selection of recipes on line and in my Home Cheese Making Ricki Carroll cookbook. and have a greater variety of cheeses to try

This is a great starter pack for those new to cheese making or those who use these particular cultures regularly. This was my first purchase in my cheese making adventure. I wasn't sure how difficult the recipes were going to be or what I would actually like back then. This starter packet allowed me to purchase a small amount of each type so I could try various recipes to figure out what I (and the family) liked. Additionally, I probably would have never splurged for the buttermilk culture, so having that included was almost like a bonus (there's lots of stuff to do with buttermilk!). All cultures are easy to use - warm your milk, add the packet (via your recipe's directions) and boom - you're good to go. It's hassle free and worry free. You can just toss in a packet as opposed to trying to figure out what a pinch of a culture is when you don't have a mini measuring spoon set or when you're too ill prepared (like I am) to keep prepared starter in your freezer. Great product!

Perfect Sampler
