Hi everyone. Really appreciate anybody's feedback.
Working with either 3% or skim milk, I am able to produce beautiful microfoam. Upon pouring the milk into the espresso, the milk and art look fine. However, within 1-2 minutes, the milk begins to have "worm-like" holes, and after about 3-4 minutes, the foam has separated from the milk similar to how sour milk separates after foaming. Any ideas?
It does not happen 100% of the time.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think that's just what tends to happen eventually. Mine pretty much always does that.

If my photo upload works, perhaps you can see whether my problem is like the one you mention also happens to you eventually.
I have made drinks for over 10 years and the milk only started looking like this in the past few months. It is more pronounced now.
