Each sachet of freeze-dried culture contains a blend of 4 selected bacteria to ensure consistent results:-
Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, Lactococcus
lactis subsp. cremoris, Lactococcus lactis subsp.lactis biovar. diacetylactis
and Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris.
The contents of the sachet are simply mixed with one litre of milk according to the accompanying instructions and will produce enough starter solution to produce over 30 batches of cheese! Works well with cows, goats, buffalo or sheep milk.
The starter solution, when added to milk 'ripens' it, making it ready for cheese formation.
The starter solution, when produced as above, may be stored frozen: if placed in ice-cube trays, this will make it easy for the correct quantity to be used for inoculation of future batches of milk.
When the starter solution is used in combination with rennet then the consistent production of cheese can be achieved, batch after batch! Inoculate and produce cheese at normal room temperatures (20 - 25C). Store unopened sachets in the freezer to extend shelf life indefinitely.
We sell over 100 items in our eBay shop, that vary in weight from 3g to 50kg, so I'm sure you can appreciate that it is impossible to devise a postage system that covers every possible purchase combination! That is why we stress that if customers are buying multiple items, then please ask for an invoice first; that way it gives us a chance to correct the postage part accordingly.
