Real Italian Mesophilic cheese culture from Italy!   Lyofast MO 030

Makes the best Mozzarella cheese, along with the Italian Thermophilic culture. Making mozzarella the Italian way is the traditional way for enjoying that "old world" flavor, rather than the fast half hour method of making it with citric acid and then tasting the acid in the cheese. Read our blog article on the comparison of making mozzarella with culture vs citric acid.   And we discuss the issue of calcium chloride use.     

You can use this mesophilic culture to make all sorts of soft and semi-soft cheeses (including Colby and Cheddar), and even the most wonderful tasting homemade butter!   It provides for the best flavor for your homemade cheeses!  This culture is also the substitution for Biena Meso III which is no longer available from manufacturer. 

It contains:

LC: Lactococcus cremoris   And   LL: Lactococcus lactis

This culture is very economical to use:  only takes 1/16 tsp per 1-4 gallons! And will last for making cheese with about 125 gallons of milk!

There are many cheese cultures out there. We carry a variety of cultures from three countries... Canada, France, and Italy.   Many cheese supply stores offer kits for a particular cheese.  We do it differently.  There are many different cultures that can be used to make the same cheeses, each resulting in different flavors because of the culture that was used. We believe in educating about the different cultures and then letting you try the different ones to find out your culture (flavor) preferences!  In our cheese making kits, we always tell you what cultures are included. Once you know how to make that cheese, we challenge you to try other cultures and enjoy a variety of flavors for your favorite cheeses. 

Store all dry cultures in the freezer.
