If I put a gallon of whole milk in the freezer today, how long does it stay good for? The exp. date on it is the 21st...So how long can I leave it in the freezer, and once I take it out, how long is it good for? Thanks!!

  • Yes you can! We always buy 2 or 3 and freeze all but 1. We put one in the freezer right away so I'm not sure about yours, but ours lasts at least a week after its unfroze. This saves us trips to the store!

  • i think the milk jug will bust for one, another thing is when you thaw it out after you take it out, it will turn like water. i have froze milk once and it was no good for me to do it again.. sorry

  • Our milk jug does not bust. We buy 2% and its never watery once it thaws.

  • I always made sure we poured a little out to allow for expansion when freezing, it never tasted bad afterwards and saved me huge when there were sales on milk, it can last for up to 3 months in the freezer and it takes about half a day to thaw in the fridge you have to shake it up a little before using.
