    I asked Steve what the best all purpose Mesophilic culture to get. I used to use the re-culturable meso. So far has worked GREAT. Will buy again when I run out!

    Hello Steve - To review the starters they are fine (so far I have only used one of them). What I really want to say is that your service has amazing delivery speed! I just ordered and bingo it was there on Monday! I live in a rural area on the north CA coast so I think you have secret elves who do magic delivery tricks! Thanks as always - Cheers to you and your family. Judy C.

    If you only use one mesophilic culture, this is the one to keep handy!

    I am a former hobby farmer turned cheese making instructor, home cheese hobbyist & blogger, and cheese artisan at a local raw dairy. This is the culture I use to make the majority of my recipes (at home and at the dairy) that call for a mesophilic culture and my cheeses always turn out with rave results. I recommend this culture the most because of its versatility and flavor.
