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.

    • Hi, I found this type C ferment hiding in my cabinet. I think I received it as a bonus in my last order (a while ago) but I don't have any instructions on how to make the culture for the cheeses listed here. IS there a document/pdf I can get from your company with instruction for making swiss/gruyere cheese? Thanks
    • Thermo C is an ingredient used in a variety of different cheeses, so it isn't exactly a specific culture like our other yogurts. Check out these cheese recipes at this page:

      The best thing to do is look for a type of cheese you like that uses Thermo C as the culture.
