Hi all.

Has anyone noticed any difference between the discontinued Danisco TA60 series of cultures and the STAR that has replaced it (at least in Australia anyway)? 

I was told that STAR was just a rebranding of the same product but my final cheeses have been much softer so  I am wondering if it is a different strain of S. thermophilus.  I notice on the spec sheet it says that it is particularly suited to mozzarella etc whereas the TA60 series was recommended for Comte, Asiago etc.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
