    Yodiewan - did you seperated the cream after the 18 hours? Thanks

It never did make whipped cream like I usually get. I increased in volume and went directly to the butter/buttermilk stage.

    I got maybe a 1/4 cup of butter from about 2 cups of cream. The milk was from Jersey cows. I've heard that different breeds have different size fat globules in their milk, so maybe that plays a role.

    All that being said, it is some of the most delicious butter I've ever had. Give it a go and let us know how it turns out!

    I get raw milk from a mennonite family in PA, they have Jersey cows so there is a lot of cream in the milk. If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, put the cream in the bowl, and use the paddle attachment. Mix on high (you will have to hold a towel around the top of the bowl in the beginning so you won't have heavy cream flying everywhere). The butter will collect in the center while the buttermilk will separate, just stop the mixer and pour it into a separate container.

    Sorry, that was a typo. I meant to say "IT increased in volume". I mean the cream itself increased in volume. Like frothed milk, but it never made whipped cream.

    I should have been more specific. I skimmed the cream off the top of the milk after it had been in the fridge overnight. I let only the cream sit out. I put the milk back in the fridge.

    Yodiewan - so after you let it sit out for 18 hours, you skim the cream and then churn it. If it doesn't solidify, you put in back the freeze or fridge? What do you do with the extra cream? Do you readd it? Do you shake it or put the milk in a blender? If you shake it, does it matter if you use a glass jar?

    Thanks againF!
