Sorry - temporarily out of stock

Cheese Culture - Standard General Purpose Mesophilic - Pack of 2

This freeze-dried blend comprises 4 selected bacteria (Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris, Lactococcus lactis subsp.lactis biovar. diacetylactis and Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris) to ensure consistent results with a wide range of soft, semi-hard and hard cheeses. These cultures 'ripen' the milk, rendering it acidic and in the correct form for the rennet to do its job - turning milk into curds and whey.

The contents of the sachet are simply mixed with milk according to the accompanying instructions to produce one litre of starter solution, which is enough to produce over 30 batches of cheese!

The starter solution can be frozen in ice cube trays for future use.

    General purpose Mesophilic culture

    Posted by Tracy Lister on 16th Mar 2023

    There are so many different things to learn when you’re new to Cheese making. I went with this product because it sounded simple and could be added to a range of hard cheese recipes- rather than being for a specific cheese. It was so easy to use my first time of trying- so much so I’ve just ordered some of the hard cheese molds to do it properly next time! The price was really competitive and delivery was really quick too! Can’t wait to make a proper “cheese round” when my molds arrive! Thank you.

    Mesophilic Culture

    I purchased this culture from Homestead Farm, as I always do, and used it to make a 4lb wheel of Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese. It looks and smells great, but now maturing for a few months. Excellent product in my valued opinion.
