This Culture Sampler cheese making kit is for the cheese maker with some experience looking to expand their horizons, or for the brave but serious beginner. Makes a great gift too! It is a kit suppling a variety of cultures only, and does not include any of the tools or rennet necessary for cheesemaking.
This cheesemaking kit for sampling of cultures is exclusively from Homesteader's Supply! This kit is the real deal, a variety of cultures you need for making real cheese just like the professionals, and there is enough culture to keep you going in your cheesemaking for a long time. Each tub is exactly as we sell it and if bought separately would cost over $100. You save a whole lot of money buying them as a kit! And, who better to buy from than a company that does make cheese and will answer your questions!
This kit includes 6 cheese cultures you can try out to make more of a variety of cheeses from the soft like Cream cheese, Sour cream, Quark, Cottage cheese, Fromage blanc, Chevre frais, FETA and even Cultured butter, to semi-soft like Brick, Jack, Farmers, Gouda, to even some of the hard cheeses like Mozzarella, Cheddar, Parmesan, Romano. We have also included two of our favorite yogurt cultures, Lipase for creating sharper cheeses, 2 yards of 90 count cheesecloth, and our Recipe booklet..

Suggestions to add to this kit:
If you are in need of the tools for cheesemaking, you can check out some of our other kits, or you can add what you need such as molds, rennet, drying mats, etc.
If you want a cheese press, then check out our Ultimate Cheese Press!
If you do want to make some of the Camembert and Blue type cheeses or Swiss type cheese you will need to purchase some of the ripening powders.
Most important because cheese making really is a science as well as a culinary art is the best book The Cheesemaker's Manual by Margaret Morris. At Homesteader's Supply we have used many of the books, but this one is great by far for an all around, how-to, and why, and trouble-shooting, along with photos to help.
