This pack 5 sachets. Each sachet doses 4L of milk. Strains included in this culture are: Penicillum candidum, Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris, Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis, Leuconostoc.

Penicillium Camemberti (ZX27) (also known as Penicillium candidum or Penicillium caseiolum) is essential in the ripening process of white surface mould cheeses such as Camembert and Brie and Aromatic Mesophilic (YV32) is essential in creating the creaminess and buttery flavour in the cheese.

Mad Millie suggests storing them in the freezer as soon as you get them in order to prolong their life. These mould spores last out of the freezer (at room temperature) for 2 months so will be fine during postage.
