Each packet contains both starter culture and rennet. Just add milk! Full instructions included.

What is a direct-set culture? A direct-set culture is a one-time-use culture, and cannot be recultured (i.e., perpetuated beyond the single batch). Direct-set cultures are often preferred by cheesemakers as they require no maintenance or care. Simply keep the packets in the freezer and remove what you need for your recipe when it's time to make cheese. Most direct-set cultures contain multiple doses to inoculate multiple batches.
