Hi Ursula I emailed Rosie in mid August and she came back with this answer - Hi Steve, I am afraid that we can only supply large commercial manufactures directly from here. However, we do have a sub-distributor, Green Living Australia, were you can purchase the same culture. Please visit www.greenli...

If as you have stated, Americas Cup has no importance for you...

Hi Jan Claiming the Ozzies won the cup for the US is a bit much isn't it. :shock: NZ could easily claim it as well since it was Sir Russell Coutts (Kiwi) that was the the force behind the campaign and steered the whole show. :shock: The US only had the money which as we know, quite often wins the Am...

OK I'm in. Would love to learn more. Just got some Csabai from Crustyo44 :grin: and definitely keen to learn more. Just bear in mind for us here in Oz that we may not be able to get the required Chr Hanson products such as F-RM-52. We can get F-RM-7, F-1 & T-SPX from MBL No mould cultures in Oz eith...

Aces I reckon the vacuum packer is the way to go if they can't all fit in my fridge :grin: That's how i keep my Coppa and Bresaola long term.

Hi Igor You can get the T-SPX here in OZ but i only had a very quick conversation with him so i can only assume that they are aware of it and do use it for some items. At the end of the day, they know what they are doing i suppose :smile: Anyway, it's more information for me/us at least. Cheers Steve
