Due to the limited shelf life outside of a freezer, we can not ship this outside of North America. Place Bactoferm in the Freezer Immediately Upon Delivery!

For fast acidification. If a pronounced sourly flavor is desired, this Culture is for you. This culture causes the meat’s pH to drop to under 5.0 in 2 days. Great for thin products like pepperoni. Extra-Fast culture targeted for fermentation temperatures 80°F-100°F (drying is done at lower temps.) Typically, the use of this culture is for products needing about 3 weeks or less to complete. To test if the bactoferm is still viable, simply shake the package. If the bactoferm is loose when shaken, like sand, then the bacteria is alive. If the bactoferm is clumped together and does not sound loose then the bacteria has died and should not be used.

    Great culture. Fast working, and gives sausage that extra pop.

    first use and am impressed! Might give extra time for the ferment on the next batch,
    would like to see some recipes using the LHP ie for summer sausage etc.

    Usually I get my order extremely fast, but not this order. It took over 2 weeks to get a package of starter culture. Could be the US Postal Service or Covid 19 that caused the delay, I just worry about it, because if my information is correct, it is a culture and the longer it is not refrigerated the faster it deteriorates. Other than that, they always supply me with good service and an excellent product.

    No. You cannot.

    LHP requires different fermentation conditions and duration. It also will finish fermentation in under 24hrs if done properly.
