About This Product
BREVIBACTERIUM ( B-LINENS ) Creates red/orange color on rind.
Add the red/orange color seen on cheeses like brick, Munster and Limburger using one of our available b-linens yeasts. Add color to some styles of bloomy rind cheeses.
B-linens yeast come in small packets. Use a very small amount to inoculate a small milk batch (1-10 gallons).
