I'd rather fill mine with whiskey, it would sound better to me if nobody else, however I think it would have been better to post this thread on April 1st !!

So for a heavy darker sound use whole milk ,and 2% to lighten it ?
Be sure to mix the milk with Nestle's Quick. The Nestle's bunny will do wonders inside your trumpet.

Try a milk shake for a nice vibrato.

Now to put a feline among the pidgeons. I have done a little 'speriment with some brass tubing and some fullcream milk from the fridge - I'll post pics soon. I took a piece of brass tube and part immersed it in milk for 24 hours. The brass changed colour, so obviously there was a chemical reaction of sorts. Well, I cleaned the tubing as I would with a trumpet and the staining is still evident. No idea what the effect is on sound, but the smell of milk is completely non existant and the brass has CHANGED. Now, over to you blokes, perhaps there is something to the original posters rumour.
If you move the valves a lot while the milk is in there, will you make butter?
I've got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. Don't fall for that. The odor emanating from decayed milk will alienate your fellow musicians for years.
