Brie and camembert cheeses are very similar, soft-ripened, creamy cheeses you develop from cow’s milk. Similar in flavor and texture, these cheeses are earthy, nutty and grassy. While camembert has a more intense, earthy flavor, brie tends to be on the milder, buttery side. Whether you eat your cheese with crackers or serve plain on a tray for your guests, brie and camembert are well-loved, choice cheeses that your platter would be empty if you did not have it. Due to the closeness of these two cheeses, we have a camembert or brie cheese making culture mold and rennet.
In this kit, we include four packet-sets of cultures and brie rennet. You do not have to start the culture yourself! Our inoculants are freeze-dried direct set. You take the dry rennet and dissolve it into a small amount of water, then after about 10 minutes, place it directly onto the milk surface. With one packet, you make two cheeses with one gallon of milk. Every kit includes four packets. The process is easy for you, because we have already measured out the packets. Now, if you feel like you are making brie cheese more often, without the use of a kit, you can always purchase the inoculants separately. However, this culture and mold set will cut down on the time you spend measuring. Convenience is important with these sets, not to mention it makes it even easier for beginners.

The pre-measured packets are simple, the several camemberts I have made came out perfect. The calf rennet seems to produce a better curd than vegetable rennets I have used
Great Camembert kit

Have used it non-homogenized cow milk with great results. Going to try it in goats milk this time
