    So I made some buttermilk (from the Fankhauser site) can I use that for cheese making? or should I just use the stuff I bought @ the store? I can't see where it would make a difference, but I don't want to waste milk :/

    As long as your sanitary procedures were good you can use it for cheese making. I do it all the time, using the buttermilk as a mother culture, keeping it going for months.

    I culture buttermilk for the sole purpose of making cheese. Personally I would rather use my own cultured buttermilk for the cheese starter than store bought. I would use up the store bought buttermilk in pancakes or cornbread.
