Culture Cupboard Camembert & Brie Starter Culture makes a great introduction to artisan cheese making at home. Using small quantities of milk and short maturing times, you can make beautiful cheeses. This pack contains 5x sachets, each makes two camembert with expertly blended cultures and moulds for a traditional cheese.

Culture Cupboard cheesemaking starters are made in New Zealand in small batches for maximum freshness. Because they're made fresh, each pack has a long shelf life of 8-12 months.

When making Camembert cheeses at home, a pan that will hold 4-6 litres of milk, a thermometerrennet and cheese draining baskets are useful equipment items. A cool place to mature the cheeses for 2-3 weeks, such as a cooler bin or wine fridge is useful. 
  • Store in freezer.
  1. Heat up to 4 litres of dairy milk to the temperature specified.
  2. Add a sachet of starter culture according to the recipe. 
  3. Allow 1 – 2 days to make and then 3 weeks to mature.
  4. During the first 10 days the cheeses have to be tended closely and they need a cave like environment that is cool and damp.
  5. You can achieve this at home with a chilly bin or wine fridge.

      • Camembert and Brie cheeses are for intermediate cheesemakers.
      • Making Camembert is a fun project for serious foodies with time to invest.
      • Recommend a good recipe book.
      • It takes only four litres to make two Camembert.

      Firstly there are no instructions with this kit, one has to go to their web site and trawl through adverts to find which cheese you want to make . Then discover you have to purchase rennet. Why no instructions on the box or an insert? Won’t be purchasing again.
