    The product is great! What I loved even more was the nice little touches that Steve included. He wrote a little note on the order slip and included this adorable fridge magnet business card. I now have that added gift displayed proudly on my fridge. 6/5 would order again!

    So much obliged to Steve's assistance. The Neige strain is what i needed for my cams to get better. It's just perfect. Steve is very attentive and helpful in all aspects when you are buying at cheesemaker. Recommend him and going to get some other stuff from cheesemaker. Took almost 4 weeks to ship mold to Russia. It's fresh and alive. Thank you, Steve! Greets from Moscow. NOTE FROM STEVE: Thanks for the nice comments Denis. Even though we ship same day as ordered, some locations take longer for an order to arrive, depends on the local postal service.

    I used this to make a Brie several weeks ago, turned out with great flavor and texture. I've purchased products from Steve Shapson for years. All have been of excellent quality and he's always available for help and guidance. Also, I don't know of any other supplier who gives so much information on the individual cultures.
