How long can I store whey? And can it be frozen?

I would like to bake bread with whey leftover from making ricotta but I don't have time to do it today. Will the whey keep in the fridge? And for how long? Can I freeze it?

It will hold for about a week in the fridge and for about three months in the freezer. Great idea to use it in bread! It's also fabulous in pancakes, for cooking mashed potatoes, and especially, to replace the water when cooking polenta! (I have a recipe here for that.) ;o) P.S. If you use it for cooking potatoes, save it and use the potato starch enriched whey in bread! It's amazing.
