    • I have the packet of direct set mesophic starter it is 2 tsp. I need to know how much to put in. I also have Ricki Carrolls book. Thanks for your help.
    • For the direct set starter culture that has five packets in the package, each packet will set up to two gallons of milk.

      For the direct set culture MA11/19 that has eight packets in the package, use 1/8 tsp. per gallon of milk or 1/4 tsp. per 2-5 gallons or 1/2 tsp. per 5-10 gallons.

    • I am ready to make cream cheese but dont know how much starter to use. It says a packet of direct set mesophic starter. What size is the packet? I have 2 Qrts 1/2 &1/2
    • Making cream cheese with our starter culture is a two-stage process.

      First, you use the packet of starter we send you, and add it to one quart of sterilized, cooled milk. This will set for 12 to 15 hours, and result in a culture you can use to make cream cheese. Put the culture you've just made into ice cube trays and freeze it.

      To make the actual cream cheese, add one cube (about two tablespoons) of the starter to a quart of sterilized and cooled milk, and let it sit for 12 to 15 hours. This time, the result will be cream cheese!
