great idea using the cream I  skim off the raw milk to add fat to the fat free milk.  Any idea how much cream you add to fat free to bring it up to the fat level of whole milk?  I guess if it were fat free and I added 5 oz. to a gallon that would be about 4%??

Not sure about skimmed from raw milk, but for the cream you buy in the store I think 1 cup of the store bought just about equates to 3.5%-4% when added to 1 gallon.  I calculated it out based on the percentage of fat listed on the cream label.

I would think that raw milk skimmed cream would be similar...
