    Haven’t used this product as of yet but I have had friends tell me great things about it

    I have used this product for a long time, so I know that it is a good product. The problem is that you shipped it in a manner that left it without refrigeration for over a week. I appreciate the free shipping, but If I would have known how long it would take to get to me I would have rather paid for faster shipping. As it is, I don’t know if the $40.00 worth of starter culture, I received, is still any good? I will purchase somewhere else next time.

    Have been told “Best sauerkraut I’ve ever had!” Use it every time I make a batch.

    This starter culture really speeds up the process for pickled items especially, I just love it!!

    I’ve used for years and tried other cultures and the old salt method. This is by far the best veggie culture available. I’ve done every veggie imaginable and sauerkraut. Sauerkraut will be the best ever! Highly recommend.

    Caldwell’s starter culture works great on cabbage – I have tested it personally. The sour fermented cabbage was crispy with great fresh flavor from November until April, when we have finished the last bucket. Note that you should keep finished product in a cool place after the initial fermentation process. Just follow the accompanying instructions if you have no prior experience – they work. And this culture is also a bit cheaper at The Sausage Maker than from other distributors. Lesser price means faster turnout, which means the goodies are fresher.

    Great product. Ferments robustly imparting clean taste. Worth the price.

    This culture gives you great cultured veggies every time. Good service in a time of widespread shortages.
