Used in producing a variety of hard, moderate temperature loving cheeses, including Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Gouda, Edam, Muenster, Colby, Blue, etc. and is sometimes known as Type "A" culture. We have found this culture to be ideal for Camembert and Brie.

This culture features in our Hard, Soft, Feta, & Camembert Cheese Kits.


  • Suitable for 100 litres of milk
  • 1 sachet used for 12 doses suitable for 8 litres of milk each

I enjoy experimenting with my hard cheeses and can push this starter to the limits with temperature and time etc. I find that it is almost a universal starter and meets my needs perfectly

This is the second time I buy this product and I am really satisfied with the results. I mostly make feta, which comes out very tasty. The best of all, it had a Kosher certificate.
