    Absolutely it will work. I had a soap company (sold it when I moved) that was called Dancing Cow Creamery.....I used milk from my Jersey cow. It works just like goat's milk...I always froze it first, then added my lye. Piece of cake!

    Works just fine. That is what I mostly use nowadays. I do a facial bar with milk and add heavy cream at trace - sheer luxury.
