Mesophile Aroma Culture Type B Large Bottle Wholesale 10D (100g)

A popular culture for many soft cheeses, cottage cheese & cultured butter

About This Product

Artisan and home cheesemakers can get flavorful results by using Mesophile Aroma Culture Type B. Once added to milk, this culture gradually causes it to ripen and create a variety of products. With a mild tang with medium acidity and buttery aroma, b cheese creations can be started with this mesophilic culture. This culture is very versatile and can be used not only with cow milk but with several other types of milk such as buffalo, sheep and goat, to make a range of products. Use it for soft and fresh cheeses such as cottage cheese, feta, blue and goat cheese; semi-hard or semi-soft cheeses such as Edam, Gouda, Baby Swiss or Havarti; as well as other products like cultured butter, yogurt, sour cream, crème fraiche and buttermilk. It comes freeze-dried, so it is easy to measure out and spoon directly into your milk base. Mesophile Aroma Culture Type B can be used alone or in combination with other cultures to create a distinct flavor, for example in Brie or Camembert. Only small quantities are needed, with one packet being enough to ferment up to 53 gallons of milk. Use one-eighth teaspoon for one gallon, one-fourth teaspoon for two-to-five gallons or half a teaspoon for five-to-10 gallons. Then, simply let it sit for 18 to 20 minutes at 70 degrees Fahrenheit until it reaches a pH between 4.6 and 4.7. Mesophile Aroma Culture Type B is comprised of various bacterial strains such as Lactococcus Lactis, subspecies Lactis; Lactococcus Lactis, subspecies Diacetylactis; Lactococcus Lactis, subspecies Cremoris; and Leuconostoc Mesenteroides, subspecies Cremoris. Keep it stocked up along with your collection of kits, moulds, artisan ingredients and other home cheese making supplies, or as a go-to soft cheese, sour cream and many other cheeses.

    Great multi-use culture

    Posted by Jeremy on 27th May 2022

    Great culture for all sorts of dairy products. Our go-to for farmer's cheese, cultured butter, and many other things. We make products every week so the 100g container is the only economical choice. I'm glad TheCheesemaker provides it, I've found it hard to find the 100g size elsewhere.

    Way Better than Creme Fraiche Starter

    Posted by Jenny on 10th Jul 2017

    This made perfect creme fraiche and was tons cheaper than the individual packages I saw at other online stores. I would give it my highest recommendation. A perfect way to make an expensive product very cheaply!

    Buttermilk and Creme Fraiche Like No Other

    Posted by Woody Williams on 16th Apr 2014

    The first time I tried Mesophile Aroma Type B, it was love ;) Try this just once for cultured buttermilk and you'll never buy commercial again. Ditto for creme fraiche. I've used it in cheesemaking also and, now, can't imagine not having some on hand.
