    Worked great

    Posted by Stacy on 10th Jul 2022

    I'm new to cheesemaking, and I bought this to make a "Yesterdaze" cheese (a cheese that gives somewhat of a short aged flavor but can be eaten after two days). This specific culture was recommended and it has worked great for the cheeses I've made so far. Really fast shipping too!
