Penicillium Candidum Culture (10 doses)
Penicillium Candidum (white mold) is applied to mature and add piquancy to Brie, Camembert, Coulommiers, and a variety of French Goat Cheeses. It yields a lovely, white bloom on the surface cheeses. It is highly recommended to use this in combination with Geotrichum Candidum, which helps prevent the skin from slipping off your finished cheese.
When adding directly to the milk, using 1/8tsp for 4-8 gallons.
10 Dose packet contains enough powder for 40-80 gallons of milk.
For the home cheesemaker using 2-4 gallons of milk, simply add 1/16 teaspoon of this to the milk at the same time you add culture. A smidgen of Geotricum will help to develop a great rind.
When making larger batches of 50 gallons or more it is more economical to add the mold powder to 1qt of water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt in an atomizer, rehydrate for 16 hours and then spray the new cheese surface. Store the atomizer in the refrigerator and it will keep for 60 days.
Store in the freezer. Will last up to 1 year when stored properly.
