I don't think freezing reduces butter's post thaw life span. I defrost no more than a pound at a time and often half a pound at a time. It doesn't take a long time to get buter from frozen to refrigerater temp.

Awww, that brings up something else I had forgotten to ask....

I took some of my previously frozen spreadable butter and used it to butter a roll and sprinkle some garlic powder on. I then wrapped the roll up in foil and stuck it in the freezer for some future garlic bread.
Is it OK to refreeze butter products?

I also freeze butter with no problems especially when it's on sale that way you can stock up. I also rotate all my stock whether it's freezer, pantry or fridge.
