Looking for Buttery Flavor without the holes
« on: August 13, 2012, 10:49:13 AM »
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of a culture that would impart the diecetyl flavors without leaving big holes in the cheese.  I haven't tried anything yet, but most of the descriptions I can find seem to have a lot of Co2 activity.

Thanks in advance!

Danisco's MD 88 is not too bad for getting tons of diacetyl without too much Co2. There are some regular l lactic cremoris types that have decent diacetyl without CO2, but it's going to be tough getting them commercially for normal folks. Try MD 88 or 89 and see if you like it.
