Default Anyone make cottage cheese?

I have seen many different recipes online. Some involved and others not so much. Just wondering if anyone had tried some and what the results are...

Some of the recipes I have seen:

Not that I think cottage cheese is horrible, it just doesn't sound... well... age able? Which kind of sucks, most likely why no one talks about it much.

It should keep a week or two in the fridge properly stored. It also would be fairly easy to freeze the curds. No different from mozzarella or ricotta storage I would suspect...

My concern is with the relatively low yield to milk used. One gallon of milk for 2 cups of cheese is not a great value, but I wasn't sure if those numbers were a little off. Perhaps I will try a smaller batch at some point.

Alton Brown did this on Good Eats. I've meant to try it, but have not gotten around to it. I like CC. IIRC Alton used leftover milk from something else, or visa versa.

I think his recipe was simply some vinegar in skim milk or something like that. Maybe it was lemon Juice...
