You can store it in the freezer (be sure to leave about an inch of space at the top of the container or bottle to allow for expansion of the milk when it freezes):
* for up to 2 weeks in a freezer compartment located inside the refrigerator * for 3 to 4 months in a freezer that's self-contained and connected on top of or on the side of the refrigerator and is kept at 0° Fahrenheit (–18° Celsius). But be sure to store the milk in the back of the freezer, not in the door)
* for 6 to 12 months in a deep freezer that's always 4° Fahrenheit (–20° Celsius)
4. How long does it last? If you have a deep freeze that operates at about 20 degrees Fahrenheit, you can store milk for up to a year before using it. A regular freezer can store milk for six months, and if your freezer keeps your ice cream soft, you can probably only count on it for three months. If your milk was pumped and stored in the refrigerator more than 2 days (48 hours) ago, it's past its shelf life for freezing: don't freeze it.[/b]
