Advice on creatine/whey protein

I weigh 12 stone and i am 6 foot 1, i have been using creatine for a few months, and recently i bought some whey protein, but i need some advice on how to use the both, I have heard different methods but im not sure which i should use. I usually take my creatine capsules 30minutes before workout (3  before, 3 after), but i don't know when i am to take the whey protein, and how much of it?

I take 2 Whey shakes a day, with a spoonful of peanut butter. One when i wake up with breakfast, and one post-workout. Might not taste great but you can always alter them. Hope this helps!

You can use water as a cheaper alternative, although personally i think that tastes like dog sick. But, by all means give it a try :P!

Take creatine pre wo on workout days and in the morning on non training days, remember to drink loads of water when on creatine. Protein supplementation is to be used as its needed theres not a certain amount of times you HAVE to take it, it depends on the rest of your diet, aim for at least 1g protein per 1lb of your bodyweight and use protein supplementation as you need it.

The way you using the creatine is fine,
 
If you had to say wot the best time for your whey is id say straight after training and just before you go to bed mixed with milk but to be honest the main factor is getting as much realy food down you as possible if size is your main goal

whey tastes better with milk imo. You should certainly take a fast actingsource of proteinwhen you wake up to jump start anabolism and eliminate catabolism, ideally whey protein or eggs. Eggs are good as an alternative protein source to whey if you consume lots of whey throughout they day ie. if you are at school and have limited food options.
Personally id take around 25g whey with milk first thing and a carb source such as oats powder, and definately straight after your workout, maybe a little more. Generally depending on bodyweight you should be taking 20g-40g whey per sitting. Carry on taking the creatine as you are.
