Making raw milk cheese

For complicated reasons, I have two gallons of raw milk in my freezer. I'd like to make some cheese, and would appreciate any guidance. Thanks, everyone!

    1. See this page from the New England Cheesemaking Co. for everything you'd ever want to know about milk used for cheese:

      If you decide to experiment with your frozen milk, shake it often as it thaws, as milk that has been frozen will separate out. Still, if it's cow's milk you have, you may not be pleased with the result.
