    Are there any cheeses that are good to make with milk that is 3-4 days old?

    Or must it always be fresh milk?

    And what would you consider fresh milk? Less than 24 hours old? With our family size, I make large batches of cheese at a time, and wonder how old the milk can be before it affects my cheese results?

    Thanks,
    PJ

    I freeze any left over after 48 hrs and have used this for cheese with nary a problem.

    3 or 4 days is fine as long as your milk handling and sanitary practices are good.

    I can only make cheese on the weekends, DH watches baby. I've never had any problems with setting or flavors. :)
