    Milk that does Texture.

    At this time of year we keep hearing about milk that won't texture, I'm sure most of us are well aware of the reason why.

    Bought a couple of liters of Mooloo Mountain milk yesterday, just made the boss a Cappuccino using this milk, textured brilliantly, no effort required.

    A Parmalat product.

    Bit of a dig but far out Farmdale fresh full cream milk from Aldi does my head in. I'm new to making coffees on an actual coffee machine but it just wouldn't froth and screamed like I was killing it. I almost had to stop as it was so loud. It never frothed properly in my old nespresso el crapo frother either. Going to get a litre of not Aldi milk this arvo and have another go as I am 110% certain it wasn't that I did anything different

    I am interested in the OP's comment on the reason why milk doesn't froth back in January.

    Hi Goobags, the screaming milk may be due to not introducing a small amount of air, via the steam nozzle, into the milk jug at the beginning of steaming. Summer months milk can be different compared to winter due to a change in feed (from memory). I use Jersey Girl which is pretty consistent all year.

    Interesting thread, we don't seem to have an issue here in NZ.
    I use 1/2 cream blue milk, EM6910

    Cheers for the feedback noonar, I made another cup this arvo with A2 milk or something similar and didn't have any issues. I will have another crack at it tomorrow with the Aldi one and see how I go

    Here in SE Queensland I use Maleny Dairy Full cream - lovely milk with or without coffee. I do have a stretching problem maybe once or twice a year. I recently experienced this but 6 litres later all back to normal. It is predominantly Guernsey milk, yellow, creamy and delicious. I have heard this phenomena can be due to a change in feed conditions but really don't know.
    Cheers.

    I use the devondale full cream milk. No trouble stretching it from 5 degree with the rancilio silvia wand. Mildly sweet and creamy!

    In Melbourne, have been using The Great Ocean Road brand full cream and works well. Does tend to change its flavour considerably throughout the year mind you. I would assume this is due to the changing feed for the cows.

    Hi guys

    I have tried jonesys but it's very inconsistent, same with pura . A2 has been good for stretching. The others have been too watery and left bubbles on the surface. Do you guys know of any other consistently good milk for stretching ?

    Paul's farmhouse gold seems to be quite good

    Over here in West Oz, Bannister Downs in glass bottles is brilliant. It is a (very) lightly processed Frisian so it does not fight with the coffee for flavour dominance (unlike my favourite drinking milk - Guensey - which is so rich it becomes a battle to balance the cuppa).

    Now I think about it, it has been available for circa 5 years, and I have never had the "3 weeks of no froth" seasonal problem with it either.
