    Mesophilic Direct Set C01 Making Buttermilk

    I use this starter to make delicious buttermilk. I use 1/8 teaspoon per quart of milk to make buttermilk. My husband prefers the taste, thickness of this starter for his buttermilk over the traditional Buttermilk starter. Thank you and greatly appreciate your company for providing a wide variety of products

    Mesophilic C101: indispensable

    <p>C101 is one of those basics a home cheesemaker can't work without. I have used it in combination with other cultures to make brie and camembert, even Iberico and tomme.</p>

    The premeasured one use packet is helpful. A lot of the cultures are expensive, however. It would be helpful to know whether these could be used to make a mother culture to decrease cost. Also including other names that may be used for the cultures you provide would be helpful. I've seen a number of starters in cheesemaking books, and I don't know which recipes I can use your products in.

    I have had great success using this culture to make fresh goat milk chevre. The quantities provided in the individual packets are the perfect amount for the batch sizes I work with and the instructions are very clear. I have not had a bad experience using these cultures in the year and a half I have been making fresh cheese. Highly recommend.

    I've used this culture for a variety of soft cheeses. It makes a great, somewhat sour cheese that never seems to stick around for very long ;).

    :0) Very Cool Results!

    Last year was my first year with my doe's milking... having so much I froze much and in the winter experimented with the hard cheese as I had quickly mastered the soft.....the end results are my family & asking for more Gouda (called goata) having plenty more culture and the willing to provide i sadly can't comply this year as the buck we bought did not produce as he did the year when we leased him ...but the best news was that the culture will last longer so perhaps we'll be milking in the fall!!!!

    I use this culture mostly for my cream cheese. It is reliable and easy. Highly recommended. I do have to divide the packet contents because I work in small batches, and that's a bit of a pain, but that's really more of a me problem!
