In Wild Fermentations it says you can culture buttermilk but putting 1/2c store bought cultured buttermilk in with 4 cups of milk and let it sit for 24 hours. So, I did that. Well actually I used a lot more buttermilk because I just poured the rest of the container I had in there. Anyway.....I used whole raw milk and I'm wondering if I should spoon off the cream on the buttermilk. There is about a 1/2 inch of cream on the top. Will it keep better if I remove it? I know buttermilk can last for months if stored in glass.

Any thoughts?

it will last longer if you take the cream off, if there is a lot of cream you could always whip it with a hand mixer and make butter (then put the buttermilk left over from making butter back in the jar) butter is super easy to make and the taste is awesome!

Thanks. I don't think there is enough for making butter to be worth it. I'll put it on my oatmel for a few days. I thought it might last longer without the cream.
