My goat kidded 9 days ago, and yesterday we decided to try the milk. Before that I had been milking her but freezing it, and she still has her kids on her. The milk has a strange aftertaste to it that's hard to describe. It's not goaty, it's not exactly bitter or sour. It reminds me a bit of baking soda or alka seltzer. Is this likely to be caused by some colostrum still in the milk, or is it a characteristic of goat milk? She eats alfalfa hay and was on a blend of corn, barley and oats until this week. We had to switch to mare and foal feed as the feedstore was out of almost everything else. I did taste the milk previously, around 5 days after she kidded, and the taste was stronger to the point of being unbearable. I can drink it now, but my husband won't. I'm getting over a gallon a day with two kids on her. ETA I am milking into a freshly cleaned container, and putting the milk straight in the freezer to cool.
