Casein is a slow digesting protein like you said mainly for before bed or during a time when you dont plan to eat for more than 3-4 hours. Its good because it slowly digests during long spans where your body isnt taking in any nutrients and it allows a slow steady supply to your body. Its really thick so I wouldnt mix it with milk, just go with water. When your sleeping your body is really working to repair and build up muscle but without protein it really cantbuild much and thats where Casein comes in. I only take it before bed if I had a dinner with less than normal protein (like pasta) and if I had a really hard workout. Maybe 3 times a week for me. Some people swear by the stuff and if your really looking for massive gains, a shake before bed every night is important.

Ribs are tough, there really isnt muscle on them. Build up your abs and Lats, thats all you can really do other than just putting some meat on the bones.
