Whey, milk or water?

I only take whey post workout, and have been told it may be 'slightly' better to have it with water, to digest the protein in it a little quicker- and something to do with milk putting a lining on your stomach?

Just wondering how much of a % quicker, if its possible to determine in anyway, as if it was something really small I'd just imagine taking it with milk is better, as milk has benefits to it as long as your not worrying about the small amount of fat it also gives. 

 Using semi skimmed milk too, and have plenty of water so :)  Just curious, if anyone has any thoughts on it
cheers,

    I use milk whenever it's available, think it's been shown to rehydrate better post workout than water anyway

    Chocolate in milk.
    Strawberry in water.
    Vanilla with water/milk/banana/weetabix.
    Banana only if no other flavour available.

    Depends on the flavour for me but mostly with milk, Whey2o always mixed with water.

    With water in the morning and after workout, with milk before bed works well.

    I personally only use milk before bed, to slow the process. Every other time I will use water.

    Using water at first may sound daunting, and I remember finding the idea alien, and it tasting vial - but now, having it with milk is a luxury. I've gotten so used to it!

    I have all my shakes in water.

    I feel any milk bought from the store etc just isnt a good food source.  Now if i could find unpasturised raw milk i would have this.

    also i find dairy bloats me and causes me to hold water so i tend to avoid.

    If milk is a must for people i recomend the soy milk with added omegas. the unsweetend stuff.  however you dont want to much of this daily

    I used to add chocolate soy milk with my chocolate casein.

    I've actually just purchased a batch of soy milk too, as i like to go 50:50 with standard milk sometimes.

    Water with everything! I don't see the need to add milk except if you need the extra cals - makes the shake twice the price effectively too!

    Milk won't affect the absorption of the whey protein, it contains whey fractions itself. The caseinate fractions and fat (depending on the type of milk you buy) will affect the rate of digestion though.

    As a proponent of carbohydrates post-workout, I would personally use the milk all the time, however, milk does play havoc with me so I limit myself to a cup a day. Listeria is not on my list of things to become infected with (I somehow manage to avoid Novavirus through sheer luck) so raw milk is out of the question.

    I prefer almond milk (make my own), which already contains some honey to (to sweeten it) mixed with a banana post training, kind to the stomach :)

    does the milk slow down the length of time the entire digestion procress takes?

    or will the casein and fat in the milk digest slowly, whereas the whey fractions will digest at their normal rate, therefore not mattering whether water or milk is used, the whey will be digested at the same rate anyway?

    I used to buy it until I found this guide online mate:

    Make Your Own Almond Milk

    It can get expensive if you drink loads, but it's still cheaper than buying by the carton and you don't need to use masses to make a decent-sized shake.

    In short your latter answer is correct. The smaller fractions (whey from the milk and protein powder) will absorb quickly across the brush border, the speed of which is determined by how 'processed' the whey you've bought is. The other fractions (caseinates) from the milk form a gel-like substance in the gut that takes much more time to digest.

    thanks very much! in that case, if the whey is being delivered to my muscles at it's average pace anyway then I'll stick with my milk post workout for the reported rehydration benefits! (plus my shake tastes better with it...!)
