The cream is definitely thick but it doesn't really look curdled yet. Do I just keep waiting???
I normally get my whey from yogurt. You don't need to do anything to it, so I imagine your milk is ready.

I didn't think we would be able to fit one in our apt, but we are going to put it on our covered patio & if our manager notices & cares, we will just move it into one of the bedrooms. It's pretty small though, so I'm hoping he won't notice or care.
A freezer gives you so much freedom! Congratulations! Oh and this last summer we thought we were going to have to move several times and I was not going to move without my freezer. People on here (this site) said that they have never had a problem with landlords and freezers. So that should make you feel a bit better. The only thing I would worry about is condo associations if your in a condo.
