    I'm afraid you're going to have some disappointed people trying this. Cream cheese needs to have fat percentage of around 33 percent, hence the name cream cheese. Please consider retitling this to just farmer's cheese or cottage cheese.

    Oh my goodness! you forgot one very important step!! I do this all the time when milk goes off. You MUST bring the curds and whey to a boil first. let it cook and then hang in a muslin square to drain. (save the whey in a bucket and water down to use to water your tomatoes to save them from blossom end rot) If you don't bring it to a boil the bacteria that made it sour in the firs place will keep working and just making it stronger and stronger. also add salt to taste as this will improve the flavor even more and help preserve it.

    I use this as homemade ricotta and have made fantastic lasagna with it.

    Using technique mentioned in NOTE, for one cup of 'cheese' add 1 cup sugar, and whisk until sugar is incorporated. Add almonds, saffron, and refrigerate before serving.

    Buttermilk is the by product that is created when you make butter from full fat or heavy cream. Once the butter is created all that is left is a Very Low or NO Fat "Milk" which would Not make good cream cheese/cottage cheese or Farmers Cheese.
    ~Enjoy!~
