For protein pre, peri, and immediately post , we are talking only fast acting? (I like ON 100% natural whey).
Not necessarily. Once again there be no one answer. In example, pre workout protein and carbs may come from a meal eaten 2-4 hours prior to exercise. That's good, no must to take anything else pre workout. But if you're into shakes, maybe Whey and everything fast absorbing is better in pre and peri-workout phases. Post workout is once again a bit trickier. Studies have pointed out that casein and slow-absorbing protein would be better than Whey since it digestes way slower and keeps the amino levels higher. BUT, if you have a post workout meal in the 1-4 hour range after the workout you get all the slow-absorbing carbs and protein you'll need. If you're into shakes, you could prefer casein. I just don't like to harvest all kinds of different supplements, so Whey is my choise. It's not a bad choise, Casein just might give tinksy tiny bit better results.
I'm thinking 15g of carbs from cranberry juice (I have a plain run-of-the-mill cheap one, prob from concentrate, so it's likely to be just sugar) and 10g whey. I lift for about an hour, but find it hard to sip on less than 1000ml of water (sip after each set). does that have negative effects?
I just think it's all about what doesn't disturb your performance. If you want to sip that 1L of liquid in an hours workout and it doesn't bother your stomach or concentration, then do that. I'd recommend you to try that out. Don't sweat too much about these kind of things. Go by feel and test things yourself. There are different opinions, even different researches about the subject.
Dub I swear sometimes I think you DELIBERATELY try to confuse noobs.
