Product Description

Flora Danica mesophilic starter is great for making goats milk cheese, harvati, baby swiss, gouda, edan and blue cheese.

(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 which will add buttery notes to your cheese. 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).

  1. Smooth and buttery!

    Posted by K.n. on 22nd Oct 2017

    I was pleasantly shocked at the difference between this and other typical mesophilic cultures in making chevre. The texture of my cheese has been delightfully smooth, creamy, and just as the description promised, CREAMY! I love this culture!!

  2. Superb!

    I adore Flora Danica! Although it costs a bit more, I always use it for my chevre, because it produces the most lovely, flowery cheese. My first batch from this order was simply delicious.

  3. Handy for small scale cheesemaker

    Excellent product and extremely swift delivery to UK. Supplied with strong zip lock bag to keep the packet fresh in the freezer once opened - ideal for small scale cheesemakers. Much nicer texture & flavour than the starter culture I had been making :)

  4. Cream Cheese

    I make great cream cheese with this florica danica. It is lightly tangy, very easy and wonderful. Delivery service was prompt

    We have started raising dairy goats and really liked how the Danita starter worked. The cure was perfect
