I love cultured butter! And the buttermilk is SO much better than the store bought stuff.

What did you use for a culture? I've only made butter using cream lifted from the top of raw milk.

I use sweet cream for my butter, too. For cultured buttermilk, I use a dry culture https://www.cheesemaking.com/shop/bu...re-5-pack.html
You can keep your buttermilk supply going by adding about 1/4 cup of the old buttermilk to your new milk and let it set outside the refrigerator for a while.

I made mine with yogurt as a starter. One quart of heavy/whipping cream with 3 Tbsp yogurt with live culture, let it sit in a warm place for 24 hours and proceed. Simple and so tasty! This is the "recipe"/method I used: https://leitesculinaria.com/87988/wr...er-recipe.html

Love New England Cheese Making! Used their mesophilic & thermophilic cultures when we had our Jersey for making hard cheeses.

I guess we 'cultured' our cream before making it into butter by letting it sit overnight on the counter.

Well, I'm a milk soaper sooooo .... Absolutely! I've used many things I've made from our Jersey milk as Full replacement in my lye solution, including soured buttermilk. (including kefir, failed yogurt, and whey).

I don't mix the lye into my frozen, chunked up milk product slowly, rather I have my oils ready and waiting before messing with the lye solution.

I weigh out my milk product first. I freeze it in gallon zipper bags that have frozen on their side. The milk product is chunked up into 1 inch or less chunks.

Only when all my oils have been weighed, the solid oils melted & liquid oils added to them, do I turn my attention back to the lye solution.

I weigh out my NaOH. I dump about 1/3 of the lye into the chunked milk and stir to get the milk starting to melt, then dump about half the remaining lye into the lye solution, stirring some more, then dumping the remainder.

At this point, there are still plenty of frozen milk chunks. I use my stick blender to break up the remaining frozen milk and incorporate the lye, making sure the stick blender stays submerged the entire time. (I also wear a full face shield when soaping.) The lye solution goes immediately into the waiting oils. The whole process takes just a couple minutes. The lye solution is between 70*-80*F (21*-26*C).
