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.
