Each sachet has been designed to inoculate enough milk (11 gallons/ 40 liters approx) for a single batch of Swiss type cheeses, such as Gruyère, Jarlsberg and Emmental.
The starter solution, when added to milk 'ripens' it, making it ready for cheese production. When the starter is used in combination with rennet then the consistent production of cheese can be achieved, batch after batch!
Handling: Allow powder to come to room temperature prior to use. Add directly to the milk without any preliminary activation. Mix thoroughly to distribute culture evenly.
