How do I tell when milk reaches 85 degrees without a thermometer?

Deal Score0

I have to make cottage cheese for a school project, and I don’t have a thermometer but the instructions say to heat the milk to 85 degrees. How can I tell??
Well thank you for your help (not) but my regular household thermometer worked.

    I assume you mean 85c. Easiest is to bring it to where it JUST begins to boil and then let it sit for 10 minutes. It will be around 85 (give or take a few degrees).


    If you are talking 85f, then contrary to a poster below me, 85c is NOT luke warm. Your body temperature is 98.6, so 85 will will feel COOLER.

    I would nuke it for 20 seconds at a time till it feels luke warm on the wrist. Much like you would test a baby’s formula. It shouldn’t take to long.

    Luke warm is usually 85-97 degrees. So try not to go to far.
    This is the best advice I can give w/o use of a thermometer.

    Good luck!
