      Hi! How many gallons does this package?
      Hello Sadie,
      There are 2 types of application for LYO/freeze dried powder surface ripening cultures (blue mold, etc).
      Milk/curd inoculation
      Milk: generally the usage rate is 1-2 doses per 1000L/2200lbs/260 gallons milk; direct addition (powdered mold spores added right into milk)
      Curd: generally the usage rate is 1-2 doses per 220lbs cheese (same amount of milk above, assuming 10% yield); rehydrated addition (powdered mold spores + water + 8-24 hours)

      Spray application (or any post-cheesemaking application like inoculating the piercing needles)
      Same as Curd

      I understand the other culture (PV) does contain gluten. I am assuming the PJ also does since it has Penicillium roqueforti. I would love for you to make an FAQ area that lists your gluten free cultures vs any that contain gluten.
      Hi Julie,
      You are correct -- while most dairy cultures are gluten-free, the penicillium roqueforti, used for blue cheeses, is the major exception. Almost all strains of p. roqueforti contain traces of gluten, since this mold requires a wheat product as a fermentation nutrient during production.
      Thank you for the great FAQ suggestion -- we will compile the short list of items that contain gluten and post it on our FAQ as soon as possible.
      Thanks!
