PWO protein doses

I know all about taking in certain amounts of protein depending on bodyweight every 2-3 hr and all that, but will excess whey protein pwo be better for muscle gains? or will it just be stored as bf?
Thanks

    I guess it depends on your definition of "excess"...

     Personally,i take two scoops post workout as opposed to one at any other time...

     I just want to ensure i'm getting enough after intense training.

     I have no scientific evidence to back this up.Perhaps it's superstition on my part.

    Ask 10 different ppl and you will likely get 10 different answers from megadosing at like 50gms + to more modest dosings of 15-25gms.  Guess it depends on the individual and training and daily nutrition.  I've seen some studies that state protein synthesis dramatically increases when you go from 5-10 to 15 right upto 25 gms protein pwo, a further increase from 25-40gms yeilded very little further increases in protein synthesis although this is likely to be scoffed at by people who read magazines that suggests massive amounts of protein powder as they all have commercial interests in advising more! 
    I personally fail to see why individuals taking in several protein rich meals a day would need massive amounts of protein at any one time?

    one scoop is more than enough IMO! Whats more important is getting the PPWO meal in
