I tried the www.cheesemaking.com source listed in the NT book but I guess they no longer have it because nothing comes up in the search??? Does anyone else know of an online place for active buttermilk culture? I like too far away from Whole Foods to drive over there just to see if they have it. thanks mamas!

I found a great site! I don't remember the address but will post it when I find it again. On the site it said that you can use existing buttermilk as a starter! So that makes it a lot easier to make buttermilk then I thought! 1 part cultured buttermilk to 4 parts milk. I don't know if it has to be whole millk buttermilk or if the lowfat buttermilk that I usually see at the store is good enough. I'll try experimenting...

Visit David Fankhauser's web site.... he goes into detail on how to make yogurt, buttermilk, cheese, rootbeer, gingerale.. and more he is a homesteading college professor and is extremely helpful.

buttermilk can be made from any buttermilk but you have to be sure that it is "cultured" buttermilk so that there is a live culture to use.
