radio button not saving selected value

Hi i have this code:

<%= radio_button_tag(:milk_code,"Full.", :checked =>(:milk_code =='Full.')) %>

<%= label_tag(:milk_code1, "Full") %>

<%= radio_button_tag(:milk_code,"Milk.",:checked =>(:milk_code == 'Skim'))%>

<%= label_tag(:milk_code2, "Skim") %>

<%= radio_button_tag(:milk_code,"Semi-Skim’)) %>

<%= label_tag(:milk_code3, "Semi-Skim") %>

But when i submit my form and check the database the value in milk_code is not saved, any ideas? Also milk_code and milk_code1,2,3 are boolean.

Have a look at the Rails Guide on Debugging which will show you
techniques that you can use to debug your code. The first thing to do
(which is the case when debugging any code) is to find which bit is
failing. You can look in the log to check that the correct data is
being posted and then use the debugging techniques in the controller
to see why it is not being saved.
