After a workout its best if you use a faster digesting protein after a workout and use a slow one for peroids where you might go without food for a while..like when you go to sleep.

Don't worry about the "fast digesting" and "slow digesting" proteins. You wouldn't see any noticeable difference from taking whey or casein post workout, as long as your total macro/protein intake at the end of the day is the same. Really you don't even need a protein powder or shake post workout if you can get all of your protein from whole foods.
Essentially, the most important thing is to just get adequate protein and reaching your macros at the end of the day. You can use Casein post-workout if you want.NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist
