    Practical question, any of you store milk in the freezer? I would like to do it, but the thawing process is just a nightmare. I tried with some non-homogeneizised, < 2% milk suitable for freezing, but leaving the bottle to thaw in the fridge (mine is at 4C) would take several days. Some liquid forms and can be extracted during the process, but some large chunks of ice seem to take forever. I've read about some methods like placing it in water for a while, but it requires time and attention, can't really spend an hour every day just to thaw a bottle.

    You could try dividing the milk into smaller amounts in mason( canning) jars and then freezing. The smaller sizes should thaw quicker.
