Why use the Mad Millie double-walled, stainless steel culturing flask?
Ever had trouble keeping your yoghurt and other fermented foods at the right temperature? Temperature is crucial to ensuring you give the cultures the right type of environment to grow and multiply. There are two different types of cultures used with Mad Millie food products, mesophilic and thermophilic.
Mesophilic is a non-heat loving culture, this is the most common type of culture used for cheese making and can only be heated to 40oC (104oF), any higher and you will start deactivating it. The more optimum the temperature, the better the culturing process which is why for a lot of cheese making a water bath and ripening period is required.
Thermophilic is a heat-loving culture and is used to make yoghurt, coconut yoghurt, kefir and skyr. It likes to be heated up to 55oC (130oF) and maintained at a warm temperature over a longer period so the cultures can do their job!
This is where things get tricky as if you aren’t able to maintain the right temperature. The cultures won’t be working, and you’ll end up with a less flavoursome, runnier product. This is where the Culturing Flask steps in!
Whip up your next batch of yoghurt, skyr or butter and pop it into this perfectly sized flask. Leave it overnight so the cultures can work their magic and voila!
Designed to be used with Mad Millie Greek Yoghurt, Coconut Yoghurt, Skyr and Cultured Butter Kits.
