      Unsuccessful, partially my fault.

      What the title said; I followed the directions but my first packet of culture didn’t take at all. The second I think I left too long but it was within the time window on the instructions. Still, it separated and was not looking appetizing. I’m just going to go back to culturing with store bought buttermilk; I just thought a direct culture would be more consistent. Too expensive for iffy results, for me.

      Buttermilk starter

      First I ordered the starter and there was nothing in the foil of both packages. Then I wrote you and got a whole new order very quickly. Tore open, done everything I was supposed to do and the next day It had all separated and I had cheese. Quite good really but I didn't know what I was going to do with it so looked up cheese making and it said to add a little salt and lemon juice. I put it in a container and into the fridge and used it as a spread overnight for cream cheese, not bad. Anyway I used the second packet and it turned out to be buttermilk. Very thick but still good.

      Way to repurpose the buttermilk that didn't quite turn out! Your buttermilk cheese sounds delicious! If your buttermilk is turning out too thick, either try culturing at a cooler temperature or for less time.

      Challenging starter

      I never got this starter to actually make buttermilk. I tried leaving it out for different amounts of time and in different spots in my apartment, but no luck. The result was barely thickened, and smelled unpleasant. Finally gave up. This may work better for other users. I purchased my starter in late 2015. Response from CFH: We are very sorry for your experience with the Buttermilk Starter. We are always happy to help troubleshoot, as in most cases we can save your culture!
