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?

If you're making yoghurt and cheese daily you take a cup out of the saved whey and add a cup of the fresh whey this starter culture will last 2weeks. Don't mix cheese whey with yoghurt whey, keep in separate containers. No need for freezing.
