    Dishwasher bubbles

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Went to make my morning coffee as per usual and cracked open a fresh 3L Harvey Fresh (WA brand) milk, started to steam and the milk went crazy like I'd but washing up liquid in it.

    Tossed it out and tried again and it was all fine. Machine hasn't had anything put through it other then a backflush about three days ago (have made coffee's since)... any clues as to why this may have happened? It was very strange and I believe my technique was fine, as the second jug steamed fine.

    Dishwasher bubbles

    Happened to me the other day when I forgot to purge the tiny amount of water out of the steam wand before I steamed.

    May explain why it only happened the first time.

    It might only be a personal opinion, however this time of year when coming into summer i have similar problems with some milk. Dont know if its what the cows are eating or the unfortunate event of your milk being left out in hotter weather during transportation to Super markets. Or even something else. This question has be raised a few times and it seems to be this time of year it pops up...

    I know I read about the feed lots changing for cattle around summer as they shift from grass to grain fed due to the grass dying off obviously and this does impact the milk sometimes and that adding some skim milk can help. Maybe the milk was just too warm - I had walked home from the shops with it and the supermarket fridges aren't that cold.

    Maybe the jug hadn't been rinsed out properly when washing and there was a residue of washing up liquid left behind.

    I've had trouble with a cold wand creating big bubble froth instead of foam.
