Note on buying milk for your cheese The real problem is that milk is being shipped cross country after being processed by huge processing plants. In order to do this the milk must be processed at higher temps and then held at cold temps for long periods while shipping long distances to markets. This is especially true for our so called "organic milks". Many of the milks not labeled as UP are in fact heat and cold damaged and will not make a proper cheese curd. Our best advice to date is to buy a LOCAL milk, one that has not had to have the extensive "LongHaul" treatment.

This kit contains cultures that will die in temperatures over 100 degrees. Please make sure that the package they arrive in does not sit in a hot place for an extended period of time.
