I purchased this since I use so much buttermilk in cooking and smoothies. I started off strong, followed the instructions to the letter, and got a nice, thick, delicious batch every time. My house tends to run on the cooler side, and the ideal warm spot ended up being on top of my bedroom TV. Weird, but worked. I did let this die last month, but it's all my fault - I just never kept it going. This is a great culture, and I'm going to order another and stay on top of it. (Posted on 2/27/2012)
I'm having a great time with my buttermilk - I've cultured it twice, and used it to soak rice and flour so far. My next goal is to make creme fraiche! I was really afraid it wouldn't culture since I got it in the beginning of December but wasn't able to start it until January, but I think it's working! (Posted on 1/15/2013)
I use raw milk and had been trying to make my own cultured buttermilk from scratch. However it kept going bad and I couldn't maintain a stable mother culture. I have now made 4 batches of mother culture and countless batches of regular buttermilk just from the initial packet. I still have my reserve packet just in case. The directions for raw milk where easy to follow and it has definitely performed well! I've been using the buttermilk in some of my bread recipes and what a difference!!

The culture arrived quickly and I immediately put it to work. It is a great culture and as my other buttermilk culture turned bad I am very happy to have a continuous supply again.
Also the box contained 2 envelopes of starter culture so the other is stashed in the fridge incase something goes wrong with this one
Thanks very much! (Posted on 10/31/2013)
I have been making a batch every couple of days from this heirloom culture. I really enjoy the flavor and simplicity of the process. I look forward to my daily drink, and wonder why I didn't include this culture in my fermentation "arsenal" earlier. I now make water kefir, milk kefir, greek yogurt and buttermilk. My komucha starter is too new to use, but it is another ferment I will be adding next month. My skin looks great. My appetite is under control. I love it! (Posted on 11/4/2013)
