I was hoping that I could get some tips on this. How much weight is lost by clarifying butter? I've heard one fourth of the original weight of the butter is lost. Also, how long will clarified butter last in the freezer? Also, is there a certain material that you should or should not use to store butter in?

I think butter is 79% fat so if you remove all the solids and water you will have about 4/5ths left. Not sure if there is anything bad about storing clarified butter in the freezer except for that it might pick up some odors. Then again, if you have to run a bottom line, do you want your inventory sitting in the freezer doing nothing for you?
