Is this a good replacement for expensive protein powder supplements?

I was buying protein powder supplements since 8 years every 3 months. It got to a point that I became sick of spending so much on these supplements. I buy supplements, train for 2 months, then stop training for one month and all my gains are gone and so is the money and effort I put into consuming these supplements.
 
So I just found a better alternative to these expensive protein supplements. I am talking about blending 6 raw eggs with 500ml milk and I am easily going to get 57g. of protein and 720 calories. That's two servings of protein intake right there.
 
I know people are going to tell me about the negative effects of raw eggs with salmonella to begin with, but considering me and many other bodybuilders spend their entire lives on this hobby then these little things should not be an issue and risks can be taken at will.

18 eggs a day in shakes! Just buy in bulk, loads of good deals on protein to be found.

I'm wondering what the 'train for two months then stop for one month' is all about...

Go nutrition Unflavoured whey 80 is 23p per 25g serving at the minute if you buy 2.5kg, Not exactly expensive.

I buy 5kg at a time so it's not expensive.

No I do not eat 18 eggs a day, 8 eggs a day for me.

I become busy for sometime so I stop training altogether.

Yeah, whey cost isn't a factor, well under £1 for a 50g protein serving. Pretty much on par with the cheapest food options. 5kg lasts me a good 3 months maybe more nowadays I reckon. No sure what else I could eat on a daily basis that would cost me ~£40 over 3 months

That's your problem not the cost of protein powder.  Why bother with either option if you cant train consistantly?  As for losing "all your gains" doubt you gain much if anything in 2 months.

Too many Rocky movies bro.
 
It's not salmonella I'd be bothered about, more so the bioavailability of the raw eggs. In other words, reduced digestibility which means you're not getting bang for your buck.
 
Besides, 19p for an egg right? 6 x 0.19 = £1.14 per shake.
 
At the minute you can get 5kg of protein from MyProtein for £50.00. Assuming you want the same amount of protein content that 6 whole eggs give you, that's a 50g serving which means 100 servings from that 5kg bag. That's just 0.50p per 38g of protein.
 
I know where I'd rather my money went...

I got my 5kg for mp for slightly less, they had 10 or 15% discount, I should have bought enough to last me the year.

the protein content is absorbed at about50% from these raw eggs,at least for the white  but you can/are suppposed to have the raw eggs for other more important reasons than being a protein source. and cooking them is not so good for the health benefits ad ****
 
oh and dont eat the ones fromnthe supermarket raw in any case,go to a market may be ,buy from someone who has chickens/ducks free range if you want them raw

If you look at the diet kitchen youtube channel in my sig, he has a 10% off code in his video descriptions, but you have to do it via the mp link in the description too

Nothing wrong with your raw eggs, providing you are consuming some of the yolk in order to counter the Biotin absorption factor, but that's going to work out much more expensive than protein powder.
 
As stated above, unflavoured whey concentrate is about the cheapest protein source I know.

cholesterol may be an issue with this egg choice...
also I would be constantly faced with the dilemma of whether or not to keep them shelled...

Cooked egg whites are more nutritious than Raw egg white.
Also agree with above,  Whey protein will still work out cheaper and is more bio-available.
