Check out Dunking in Soy Milk? which includes discussion on different
types of milk dunks and how to do it.
Also, check out Bleach Dipping which is done as a follow-on to the milk dunk.
It seems to help prevent contams which were previously the problem
with the milk dunk.
You can use a Keyword Search on milk in the Archives for other
discussions that might help.
Hope this helps

i am familiar with both of the pages you have linked and have read them several times. but if you notice they mention nothing of using 2% milk.
i was just wondering if milk fat would definatly cause problems.

Well im only on my first try and I dunked my Pf cakes in milk, 4 for 12 hours and 3 for 24 hours and Im seeing some results with my PR's, so if that's any help to you, Im sure you you didn't cause any harm. Oh yeah, and I used whole milk.

animal fat can cause mutations in shrooms,
that's why non-fat dry milk is best, then skim.
i find 24 hours in milk to be too stressful on older cakes, so i'd keep my milk-dunks to 6-12 hours for best results.

And I must conced to this one as ive never tried the milk dunk tek . Ive allways gotten more then desirable results from just the standard spring water dunk . Now the bleach dunk has let me take 8 Cakes to a 5th flush........ Wich is amazing to me as I live in Contamination Junction...
But alas never been down this road.....
