Mesophilic Culture MM100-101

Make your own Camembert, brie, blue, chevre, feta, fromage blanc using this mesophillic starter.

About This Product

MM 100-101 is a blended mesophilic culture preferred for soft ripened and fresh (unripened) cheeses:

Brie, Camembert, Havarti, Gouda, Edam, Feta, Blue, Chevre, and similar styles. 

A mesophilic starter culture is effective at lower temperatures (room temp - mid 80'sF)  

 MM 100 and MM 101 work exactly the same; in commercial use they are used in rotation.  For home cheesemaking there is no difference.


 Available in 50, 125 and 250 DCU packets.    A 50 DCU packet will ripen about 126 gallons of milk.  

When using this culture at home a little goes a long way:  

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).

    Cheese Culture- Great Value !

    Posted by Tammy on 10th May 2024

    I am loving making cheese and not being restricted to 5 packets at a time like some other companies. Have made 5 batches so far and will be starting more tomorrow.

    This seems to make 50 gallons of milk into cheese. Since I use two gallons at a time, it will make 25 cheeses for me at roughly 1 lb 11 ounces each.. So I think the value is good and a somewhat better price than I was buying from another well known cheese company. The mesophilic starter works. I then add my rennet and eventually get cheese.

    Great with cashews

    Posted by Deborah on 24th May 2018

    I am a vegan « cheese and dairy » product maker. I use a lot of cashews for sour cream, ripened cheese, and so on. This culture was very flavourful and worked in 24 hours at room temperature. Thanks , Steve
