Starters provide cheesemakers the ability to control the amount of phage in their kitchen or factory to prevent infection. Ideally, different starters would be rotated through to provide an additional control to keep the acidity of the cheeses and flavors as they should be. In addition to the mesophilic culture, cheese paper and cheese kits can help with the cheesemaking process especially for new hobbyists or those who need to restock.

    Perfect for Fresh Curds

    Posted by Sara on 7th Sep 2022

    I use this to make fresh curds for poutine in our restaurant. I'm pretty laid-back in my recipe-the temp varies from 80-90 degrees, this is the perfect blend to cover both temperatures.
