MA 4001, commonly known as the "farmhouse culture," is an incredibly versatile mesophilic culture blend. It finds special application in the production of soft ripened or unripened specialty cheeses and can also be used for semi-hard cheeses like farmhouse cheddar. This unique blend encompasses standard mesophilic lactic acid cultures along with a thermophilic lactic acid culture (Streptococcus thermophilus). The inclusion of the thermophilic culture contributes to enhanced flavor and facilitates quicker acid production in the cheese-making process.

MA 4001 can be used as a direct substitute for MA 4002.

    This culture makes perfect Farm House Cheddar for me every time. I use 1/4 t in 4 gallons of milk. We love the flavor and everyone else does, too.
