    • From Kathy at 02/23/2019 1:18 PM
      How much milk will the 10 dose pack inoculate? Is that using the 1/8tsp for a dose?
      Hi Kathy,

      The 10 Dose contains *approx* 2 - 2.5 tsp of mold culture. For most applications, 1/16 - 1/8 tsp of p. candidum per 2 - 4 gallons milk will work well.

      Thanks!

      Is there a particular penicillium candidum you would recommend for camemberts?
      Hi Annie,
      The Neige, ABL, VB and HP6 are the classic strains of Penicillium candidum for bloomy rind cheeses. ABL is our most popular. It's usually best to pick one and try it! We can work on it from there.
      Thanks!
