Check your coolant to see if it is low. Could still be the gasket letting coolant into oil tubes.

Did the oil actually look milky when you changed it, or did it just look milky through the sight glass?

Having a small amount of condensation on the surface of the oil is common, particularly in cold weather and if you make lots of short trips. Water is a byproduct of combustion, and every time you start your engine when it's cold, water condenses on the cold metal and doesn't leave until the oil reaches full operating temperature, plus about 30 additional minutes. This can cause the oil on the surface and edges of the oil pan to become milky, and it accumulates right where the level glass is.

I have the same issue with my BMW, and it's air cooled!
