thank you for your post! slavicBeauty is a great unit and saves so much time.I enthusiastically second that! I love my Slavic Beauty cream separator. I can make ice cream, butter, and cream cheese all 100% goat's milk. It has a lot of parts to clean and put together, but if you watch the YouTube videos, it's not hard and I think totally worth it.
I tried getting cream by letting the milk sit for several days and skimming it off the top. But I was never able to get enough butterfat in the skimmed portion to make whipped cream or butter from and I ended up wasting a lot. I was also concerned about freshness using that method. The Slavic Beauty works best on milk that is still warm from the udder. Can't get fresher than that!
