Our heirloom-variety buttermilk starter creates traditional cultured buttermilk which is rich in nutritional value including enzymes, potassium, vitamin B12, riboflavin and calcium; allowing you to make buttermilk without the additives and stabilizers common in commercially available varieties of buttermilk.
One packet of starter culture can be used to make a mother culture. With proper care, the culture can be recultured and perpetuated to make unlimited amounts of buttermilk. The culture is perpetuated by using a small amount of buttermilk from the current batch is then reserved to inoculate the next batch of homemade buttermilk. With care, our buttermilk culture can be used to make homemade buttermilk indefinitely. No more having to continually buy buttermilk.
Homemade buttermilk can be used for baking, drinking or can be added to cream to make crème fraiche (European-style sour cream)
or cultured butter.
How to Make Buttermilk: Our Buttermilk culture is a Mesophilic culture and cultures at room temperature. To make a batch of homemade buttermilk, the starter is simply added to milk, stirred and then allowed to culture on the counter at 70-78°F for 12-18 hours before being placed in the refrigerator. A small amount of homemade buttermilk from the current batch is then reserved to make the next batch of buttermilk. With care, the starter culture can be used to make buttermilk indefinitely. Making homemade traditional buttermilk doesn’t get any easier than this!

Anyone can make this very easy dairy culture. No prep work, just add a tablespoon of culture to some fresh milk and let sit at room temperature for about 24 hours. Just save off some of the finished product for your next batch. Buttermilk starter needs to be cultured at least every 7 to 10 days. If using for soy milk culturing, you must maintain a small amount of pure starter on dairy to maintain the culture for the long term.
