How long can you keep homemade whey in the fridge?
Likewise, does whey go bad in the fridge?
LOL, actually the golden rule is, you would not keep it over three days in the refrigerator. But if you are starting with a product that has been simmered as long as the whey has, the bacteria is minimal.
Secondly, how long does whey from yogurt last? After ~4 hours or whenever your yogurt stops dripping, that's it! You have about 3 cups of whey in the bowl and 1 cup of yogurt cheese in the towel. Yogurt cheese lasts 1-4 weeks (you'll know when it goes bad) and the whey lasts up to 6 months.
Simply so, how do you store homemade whey?
If you make a large amount of cheese, chances are you will not be able to use all of the whey immediately. Instead, store the rest properly to use in recipes for months to come. Transfer the whey into an airtight glass container. Use more than one container if the whey does not all fit.
How can you tell if whey has gone bad?
look, stuff happens. If the whey has changed consistency — like if it's more densely packed and closer to wet sand than when you bought it — that might be a bad sign. If it smells weird or looks moldy, that's a bad sign.
