Aroma B

Aroma B is a multi-species mesophilic starter culture used for specialty fresh and soft cheeses, sour cream and cultured butter. Popular blend for goat-milk cheeses, Havarti, Baby Swiss, Gouda, Edam, Blue, etc.. Promotes the production of diacetyl/CO2 flavor similar to Flora Danica. 

Please note: There has been a recent change to this product (April 2016):
AROMA TYPE B, previously sold as a 10-gram packet, is now being sold in 1 DO (dose) packets. Therefore, the weight of the packet may vary slightly from batch to batch based on actual strength of activity of the particular lot number. Though each packet weight may change slightly from batch to batch, the total activity in the packet will remain constant. For home cheesemaking purposes, you would use this product at the same rate as before, and there will be approximately the same amount of culture in the packet as before. Please contact GetCulture if you have any questions or require clarification about this change.

    Does this culture have to be kept cold? How long will it last at room temp?
    Hello Sarah,
    Preferably yes, the cultures we sell will last the longest when kept in the freezer. Normally 1-2 years in the freezer, 2-3 months if kept in the fridge and about 5-10 days at room temp.
    Hope this helps.

    Approximately how many gallons of milk for 10 grams? Some are listed as 10 DCU, how many gallons is that good for?
    A 10-gram packet of this particular blend contains approximately 4 teaspoons of culture (minimum), so you should be able to get at least sixteen 2-5 gallon batches out of this pouch if your usage rate is 1/4 tsp per batch. If you use this culture at a higher rate (as some cheesemakiers prefer to do) or you are doing larger batches, you will get fewer batches.
    DCUs are different than grams. For a complete explanation of DCUs (which varies by product and batch), please see this entry in our FAQ section here:

    What is the difference between Flora Danica and Aroma B? Which is preferred for what purpose? Or does it matter?
    Hi Warbler,
    The difference is, they are made by different manufacturers. Each manufacturer has their own specific ratios of each bacteria. We do not know what those ratios are. There is going to be slight flavor differences with each. The only way to know which one you prefer is to try them.

    Mesophilic Aromatic Type B is my goto culture for chevre. I use it at 1/8 tsp per gallon of 79 degree milk and use DCI Supreme rennet at the same ratio 35 minutes later. I get wonderful results.

    AromaB, I love thee. I use this for a chèvre style soft quick cheese and it has so much depth of flavor. I'll never purchase cream cheese again! I also have been making delightful savory and sweet cheese balls for parties our of this cheese and actually distributed to our neighborhood so that we could have a cheese ball "bake off." I make four types of cheese cake with this AromaB cheese, too. All get rave reviews! I'm still experimenting with Kwik Trip whole milk and 2% using the GC recipes.
