Each cheese takes approximately 1 day to create (not including ageing time) and is aged for between 4 weeks and 3 months, depending upon the cheese.

Ingredients: 1x450g Salt (sodium chloride, anticaking agent (535)), 1x50ml Calcium chloride solution (water, calcium chloride (30%)), 1x10 Vegetarian rennet tablet (milk clotting enzyme, excipients), 1x5 Freeze dried ripening white moulds sachets (freeze dried lactic bacteria, Penicillium camemberti. Contains dairy), 1x5 Freeze dried ripening blue moulds sachets (freeze dried lactic bacteria, Penicillium roqueforti. Contains dairy), 1x50ml Sanitiser (iodine based sanitiser).
NOTE: Your box may say it contains Aromatic Mesophilic Culture, Penicillium Cememberti Culture and Penicillium Roqueforti Culture, but only 2 types of culture are inside. This is because we have blended the Aromatic Mesophilic Culture in with the Camemberti and Roqueforti Cultures to make it easier for you. You are not missing anything and can carry on as normal.
Shelf-life of the cultures is 24 months when stored in the freezer. This culture lasts out of the freezer (at room temperature) for 2 months so will be fine during postage. However, we suggest storing cultures in the freezer as soon as you get them in order to prolong life.
NOTE: Humidity and temperature is essential when maturing specialty cheeses. To mature these cheeses you will need to store your cheese in a Mad Millie Maturing Box in a cool place that is approx. 10-15 degrees Celsius (e.g. a basement or garage, a wine fridge with temperature control or just a spare fridge in which you can increase the temperature or turn off).
