    Surprised how small the packet is for the gallons if says it cultures. A little indeed goes a long way. First application is a cashew buttermilk; very tasty. Will try feta soon. Then maybe 5*

    I had made "feta" cheese before using a different mesophilic culture but this one definitely works better for feta.
