Flora Danica Mesophilic Culture
Free Gift

$ 22.00

Flora Danica is a mesophilic category starter culture known for producing a rich, buttery flavor and aroma that will enhance many different types of cheeses. It may not produce as much acid as an MM100 series but makes up for that in buttery aroma.

This culture is lovely for making bloomy-rinded cheeses (such as brie & camembert -sometimes in combination with an MM100 culture), goats milk cheese, harvati, baby swiss, gouda, edan, blue cheese, homemade butter & buttermilk, crème fraiche, sour cream, cream cheese and cottage cheese. 

This is a 50 dose packet - freeze-dried, direct set (DVI-Direct Vat Innoculation)

Ingredients Include:

  • (LL) Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis
  • (LLC) Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris
  • (LLD) Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis
  • (LMC) Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris

Use 1/8 tsp. per 1 gallon (3.7liters), 1/4 tsp. per 2-5 gallons (7.5-18.9 liters) 1/2 tsp. per 5-10 gallons(18.9-38 liters).

Allow 18-20 min. at 70F (21C) to acidify to a pH of 4.60-4.70.

The 50 dose packet will acidify approximately 100 gal. (378 liters of milk).

Before opening and using, be sure to crush the pellets by rolling a glass or rolling pin over the package - this will ensure correct mixing and measurement.
