Flora Danica-Mesophilic Starter


Product Description

Flora Danica mesophilic starter is great for making goats milk cheese, harvati, baby swiss, gouda, edan and blue cheese. You can even make homemade buttermilk, sour cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese and crème fraiche. Flora danica will produce the buttery flavor that makes these cheeses so delicous.

(50 dose packet) 

(freeze-dried direct set/DVI-Direct Vat Innoculation)


  • (LL) Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
  • (LLC) Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
  • (LLD) Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis
  • (LMC) Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris

Use 1/8 tsp. per 1 gallon(3.7liters), 1/4 tsp. per 2-5 gallons(7.5-18.9 liters) 1/2 tsp. per 5-10 gallons(18.9-38 liters). Allow 18-20 min. at 70f (21c) to acidify to a pH of 4.60-4.70. Can be used to make Camembert/Brie but you must use another Mesophilic starter culture also. CHN-11 will produce slightly less gas then the CHN-22 and Flora Danica, but CHN-11 is a faster acidifier.  Flora Danica will yield the fullest flavor. Flora Danica and CHN-22 can be used interchangeably as the CHN-11 can be with little or no noticeable difference.  However, when switching from Flora Danica and CHN-22 to CHN-11 you will need to take these properties into account. 

The 50 dose packet will acidify approximately 100 gal. (378 liters of milk).

    Shipping was quick! I was surprised that you really can tell a difference in the flavor over the other culture. It was much more cost-effective to purchase this product than individual packets. Looking forward to doing more business with you!

  2. Good product

    This is a good quality culture, keeps for ages in the freezer (just used up a batch which is two years old), and would recommend. Postage to France was fast, and will use The Cheesemaker again.

  3. Excellent!

    A great Flora Danica. You won't regret purchasing this for your cheese!

  5. Flora Danica is The Best

    Posted by Lyn on 21st Sep 2014

    I adore Flora Danica culture! It makes absolutely the very best chevre. I have had people from France tell me that mine is better than any they ever had at home; now that's a compliment! It is so light and delicate, I am happy to spend the extra money for this culture.
