The cream is definitely thick but it doesn't really look curdled yet. Do I just keep waiting???
I just did this, as in just today. I set my milk out on Friday (raw, slightly soured milk) so it took 4 days. Finally this morning when we woke up it had separated. Now I have a quart of whey and some delicious strawberry cream cheese (curds, strawberries, maple syrup) and I finally started fermenting my salsa (tomatoes, garlic, onions, cilantro, salt, whey).

Last night I saw some little white pearles in the milk, but didn't think it was quite done yet. This morning it was. We left it covered.
