Can I use milk instead of cream when making butter?

No, you need the cream content to make the butter, that's the whole point. The butterfat content will become the butter.

Thanks everybody. It didn't work with regular milk

Only if it's full-fat, unskimmed milk - have you some?

And even then, you'll need a lot of milk for the amount of butter you get. Remember, it's the milkfat that becomes butter, and full-fat milk is only 3% milkfat. There's a reason old-fashioned butter churns had a fairly large container for the milk.

Well you'd skim-off the cream wouldn't you? (It's a different way of arriving at "no")

I don't think so. But a thought, you could try buttermilk and let the rest of us know if it works.
