Im having my first batch of Raw milk delivered tomorrow & just wondering what i can do with it and how, i'd love to make my own fermented dairy particularly a nice thick cream or yoghurt
As soon as it's delivered i plan on drinking at least half a pint, i haven't drunk any kind of milk for years & only recently started eating raw butter & raw cheese which i've done well on so really can't wait to give the milk a try

The first time I tried raw milk I really was overwhelmed. The flavor is distinctly different from regular milk. It is really deep!
I didn't use the milk for anything else because I intended to play around with fermenting regular milk first to get some experience in that matter.
You can really do amazing stuff with milk but I recommend to take rather small steps in the beginning.
Here are a few suggestions: 1) Buttermilk & Butter Let the milk sit on your counter until the cream has risen to the top. Skim it of and put it in a blender until you can clearly see yellow flocks on top. Separate them from the liquid (real buttermilk) and press the liquid out of the yellow stuff (butter).
2) Cottage/Curd Cheese Let the milk sit on your counter until the cream has risen to the top. Skim it of and use it on whatever you like.
4) Yoghurt http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/yogurt_making/YOGURT2000.htm You can substitute the added yoghurt with yoghurt cultures. You can easily purchase them on the internet.
Take a look at these two sites. They helped me a lot: http://biology.clc.uc.edu/Fankhauser/Cheese/Cheese.html

It's milk, not some magic elixir. Use/consume it as you would milk.
Be weary of culturing raw milk, unless quality is top notch, you could culture just as much bad bacteria.
