"Fløten skulle skummes av og melka slås om, helles i stamp og surne til myse."

pour out

The term "slå ut melk" means pour out the milk or let it go to waste. Here I think it means moving the milk out of the container it is in and into the new container ("stamp"). Not quite sure about the "slå om" phrase though.
