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).

    This culture worked great and was very consistent in both of my very first times creating Chèvre. Brand new to cheese making. Also, appreciate the wonderful customer service. Had not planned well for the excess milk I was about to have, called and my order was sent right away 2 day delivery. Thanks much for your great service, Kimberly

    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

    Have used it for Quark and Fromage Blanc using local Malagasy Cow milk, which can be variable, without issue. Excellent customer service, large packet size and price and free shipping is a real bonus. Thanks. LD
