Choozit MA 4000 from Danisco has been one of the most popular farmhouse blends on the market for many years: It is an all-around great starter for everythingfrom buttermilk to soft, semi-soft, or semi-hard cheeses. This reliable culture results in a balanced flavor, making it an easy base culture to use with add-on adjuncts that can instantly turn it into a specialty culture.
MA4000 is a classic choice for Tomme, Jack, and hundreds of other types of cheeses from any type of milk. It is especially beneficial for those who make several types of cheeses and would like to have a "go-to" culture blend for multiple types. A great culture to have on hand!
Please note: Commercial cheesemakers should alternate between the 4001 and 4002 strains to prevent phage in their facilities. Occasional or home users may choose any strain. Their results are identical.
