Penicillium Candidum Sam3
This vigorous strain should be used with bloomy rinds that seem to get contaminated by unwanted molds. It features medium white mold density and height with low aromatic profile, so it can be used instead of or combined with traditional Penicillium Candidum strains.
This packet will yield approximately 300 Camembert or Baby-Brie bloomy-rinded cheeses.
Each strain will offer a slightly different flavor profile.
With this culture you may also need to use Geotrichum Candidum. Use 1/32nd-1/16th tsp.(.14g-.07g) for 1-5 gal.(3.75liters-19 liters) of milk.
You can innoculate the milk by adding the culture directly to the milk or spray the mold directly onto your cheese.
The ABL strain has low-to-medium proteolytic activity and medium-to-high lipolytic activity, meaning the proteins will break down a little more slowly, creating a firmer cheese, which the fats will break down somewhat more rapidly, creating a rich flavor profile.
