    Can I save unfiltered morning milk in the fridge and filter it with the evening milk all at once?

    No. You need to filter the milk as soon as you are done milking. Cold milk doesn't filter well. Not to mention the junk you want to filter out of the milk can possibly cause an off flavor if left until the next milking.

    I agree. Also you woulnd't want to filter the cold milk into the same container as the cold milk. This would make it become warm again and it would go bad on you much faster. Just not the best idea. I alsways keep morning and evening milkings seperate until they are both cold and then I will compile both together.

    tiffany, I read that and thought ewww "shudder" your milk would have a piece of hair with bacteria on it, floating in the milk growing larger colonies. and Imagine what else may drop in.
