maths check
« on: February 06, 2013, 04:31:19 PM »
Could some one please confirm that my mathematical reasoning is correct:

If I am adding 0.02% bulk starter to 100L of milk...

0.02/100 x 100L = 0.02L = 20ml of bulk starter.

Is this correct?

Thanks.

NV.

Your math is right, but 0.02% seems like a tiny number.  Is it possible you want 2%?
If only I could make cheese as well as I grow a mustache...

Yes it was for an adjunct culture so that's why it was so small.

Thanks for the help.

I see.  I haven't gotten that far in cheesemaking yet.  Maybe someday.

Pretty much. Depending on how you do the bulk culturing, might wind up with fewer CFUs/g, which would require more culture.
Taking an extended leave (until 2015) from the forums to build out my farm and dairy. Please e-mail or PM if you need anything.
