    We freeze our goats milk fresh (generally same day it's milked) and are just curious if anyone has any thoughts on how long we can keep it frozen without it negatively impacting the quality of soap we make?
    Will the milk that has been in the freezer for 12 months still be ok for making soap?
    Thanks

    I am by no means a soap making expert but I've used frozen goat milk that has been frozen for over a year and the soap has turned out fine.

    and please let us know how it ended up --if you noticed any differences from fresher milk to long frozen that you think were results of the frozen-issue ...please :) that's a question ive been wondering about as well --but I got no goats

    I use milk that has been frozen a year or more and the soap turns out fine.

    Same here.. its only when you defrost older milk that it seperates

    I always only use frozen goats milk in my soap making.. adding the lye to frozen cubes of milk is much safer than adding to fresh
