DCU is a formal cheesemaking unit of measurement provided by the manufacturer. Rather than measuring the culture packets by volume, this measurement reflects the activity level of the cultures within the packet. Due to variations across cheese recipes, this measurement scale does not indicate the number of doses or batches contained within a packet. Be sure to always use the amount of culture recommened in your specific recipe.
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.
