During this episode, I answer a voicemail question from Diana who wanted to know how to tell the difference between the various brands of mesophilic starter culture equivalents. For instance, is MO30 the same as MA11 or Type III Mesophilic? You may be shocked by the answer! I also go into depth about the various properties of cultures and what to look for when looking for equivalents.
OTHER QUESTIONS ANSWERED DURING THE EPISODE
- Dharma asked if there is a specific way to half or double cheese making recipes and have them turn out successfully?
- Brian would like to know how strict you need to be with temperature control during maturation of cheddar cheese (or any cheese for that matter),
- Spencer asked if rennet tablets are just as good as liquid rennet.
