Making Butter - Electric Mixer

This guy got it into his head that we needed to make butter from some heavy cream.  I convinced him we didn't need to do it using the raw cream, and that the organic heavy whipping cream from Trader Joe's would work fine.  He conceded and off we went.

He made it at school using marbles and shaking it, and at home we used the mixer with the whipping attachment.

So first it was whipped cream.

Then it got harder and harder and harder.

Then it got soft and a puddle of liquid fell out of it.  My guess is that that is when the butter happened.

So we drained off the liquid and squeezed the butter into a solid shape.
Does anyone know what that liquid is called and have any uses for it?  Is it whey?
