  • If it's frozen in a deep freeze, four to six months. If it's in a freezer attached to a refrigerator, up to three months. You can keep it a week in the fridge, 8 hours at room temperature.

  • well, how long can we freeze cow's milk? I did a quick search online and found: Fresh milk may be stored in the refrigerator for 5-7 days at 39°F. (Sosa, Roberta; Barness, Lewis: AJDC, Vol. 141, Jan. 1987.) Frozen milk may be stored in the back of the freezer portion of a refrigerator-freezer for up to six months. Frozen milk may be stored in a -20°C deep freezer for up to 12 months. Defrosted milk may be kept for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator. here's the site:
