Buttermilk Direct Set Culture
This is a thick, old-fashioned New England Buttermilk which can be made with skim or whole milk.
The amount of character (acid, flavor, texture) can be controlled by increasing or decreasing time and/or temperature.
CULTURE INCLUDES: lactose, (LL) lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis, (LLC) lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris, (LLD) lactococcus lactis subsp. biovar diacetylactis, (LMC) leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. cremoris.
YIELD: Each packet sets 1-2 quarts of milk and makes 1-2 quarts of buttermilk. We recommend using 1qt. If you would like to use 2qts, simply give it a little more time to set.
DIRECTIONS: At 72ºF, sprinkle 1 packet onto your milk and let it rehydrate for 1-3 minutes. Stir in to dissolve and let set 12 to 24 hours.
STORAGE: Keep packages in the freezer, they will last up to 2 years.
NOTE: Using our Yogotherm is a great way to incubate this culture. Your buttermilk will be thicker after it has cooled down. You may also use this culture in butter making.
