That's much more expensive and intensive to DIY than simple freeze distillation, so perhaps trying out some store-bought dry whole milk powder would satisfy the curiosity.
I think that powdered milk is typically spray dried using heat. That might be an important difference.

So once you have this milk concentrate, then you can steam it the same way you would, or do you need to do anything differently? Do you taste a difference in the cup for all this work?

Yes, you would steam the same as regular milk.

The difference in taste is subtle. Just a bit more thick and creamy.

For the record, I just found a Reddit thread from almost a year ago where the poster partially froze the milk and drained rather than fully freezing and thawing. So at least one person tried this before me and I can't claim to be first. :P
