Anybody else begin to dislike homogenized milk after trying raw?

I've been picking up raw milk lately to supplement my regular milk consumption.

After a few weeks, standard homogenized milk has begun to take on a sour, vaguely rotten flavor that I never noticed before.

Has anybody else experienced this? If so, do you know the cause? Is it the dead goodness?

Raw just tastes awesome.....I can't go back to any other crap. I don't drink milk all the time, but when I do I prefer raw (Kinda like the dosequis guy)

I actually started out disliking it and couldn't understand why someone would willingly drink it. I finally convinced myself to take a swig of the raw milk I was buying for my family and fell in love. THAT is what milk should taste like!

I dislike un-homogenized milk personally. I do like goat milk because the cream doesn't separate as easily, even then I have to really shake it before I'll drink it.

I'd venture to guess what you're tasting is the difference between cooked (aka pasteurized) milk and raw.

Old post, but curious. :-)

Will expand upon similar experiences later, but I would suspect(in order of likelihood and largest effect upon the milk's tasting bad): poor quality milk due to poor cow health, not being grass-fed affecting the composition of the milk, then something to do with the extruding process of homogenization adulterating the milk, then the pasteurization itself.

Also, having, discovering, or creating a pasteurized milk sensitivity would potentially likely affect your taste buds regarding the milk's quality.

In all likelihood, though, the milk is poor-quality, and does taste rotten/sour, or something quite similar, and the ability to taste raw milk ("milk-as-it-should-be") has made your taste buds more sensitive and more in tune with the flavor-palette of raw milk as "good".

Fast post -- apologies for any errors -- must run!

I've always hated " normal " milk, I was forced to drink it as a kid. Now that I have a regular supply of raw milk I could NEVER drink that processed/pasteurized crap called " milk ". Raw milk is natural,delicious, a real nourishing whole food.
