Can you make butter using low fat buttermilk?
No. Buttermilk is traditionally a product of making butter. It is what is left when the butterfat is churned from the cream. Commercial buttermilk these days is no longer a product of butter making but is still a low fat product (typically 1.5–2%) unsuited to making butter.
