Re: "Clumpy" Milk for how long after mastitis?
Those strings and clumps may be related to the mastitis, or they may simply be normal for you. As LLLMeg said, the milk you produce isn't homogenized the way cow's milk from the grocery store is. Cow's milk straight from the cow is often full of clumpy and/ or stringy stuff- and also hay and cow hair- which gets filtered out when the milk goes into the storage tank at the farm.

If the bottles have similar amounts of fat floating on top, then straining isn't taking out anything important.
