"Not your store-bought Feta..."

Wow is all I can say. My first batch of Feta was amazing! No doubt this culture helped it along. I highly recommend it. Also, 8 packets will go quite far as the Feta lasts along time. A little goes a long way...

What is a Direct-Set Culture? 

Direct-Set cultures are a one-time-use culture, they cannot be recultured (i.e. perpetuated beyond the single batch).  Direct-Set cultures are often preferred by cheese makers as they require no maintenance or care.  Simply keep the packet in the freezer and remove the portion for your recipe when it's time to make cheese. Most Direct-Set cultures contain multiple doses to inoculate multiple batches.

 

Additional Details About the Feta Cheese Starter Culture

This is a medium-fast to fast acidifying culture with no gas production (citrate fermentation). Due to the addition of L. bulgaricus and L. helveticus, it results in a higher proteolytic activity which improves taste and produces a creamy texture.
