I have nearly a gallon of whey left over from making cheese (first time I've done that, it was sooo good!)

What the heck do I do with all of it? I can't stand to throw it away, but I'm fairly clueless about it's possible uses.

I've been making the master recipe from Artisan Bread in 5 Min a Day. Could I use it as some or all of the liquid in that?

You can use whey in baking/cooking to replace other liquids. Here are some ideas.

I use whey in place of water in recipes for a nutritional boost. You can also use it for fermenting veggies and for soaking grains.

I've tried it in breads, muffins, pancakes, waffles in the place of milk or water.
