Worked like a charm
Jumping on the band wagon I experimented in making a root beer flavored stout. This made the stout so smooth and really made a huge difference.

It's lactose...
and it's another quality ingredient sold by Northern. Not much else to say here.

Miles stout
Good for milk or sweet stout. Used with cacao nibs to take the edge off the nibs.

Essential for sweet stouts
Lactose is great for sweet stouts but can also be used for adding body and balance to any beer that is too dry or harsh. I use 2 oz in a four gallon batch of my pumpkin pie ale to bring a difference to it and make the flavors pop.

perfect for adjusting sweetness
My wife likes her beers a little less dry than I do, so I try to walk the fine line in the middle. The lactose really helps with those fine adjustments.

great for tweaking
used this to tweak a java stout to add alittle cream so that it's like coffe and cream stout!

Exactly what my NE style IPA needed. Did one batch with a full pound of Lactose and one batch with 7.5oz for comparison.

Can I add this to my secondary? Trying to sweeten up an imperial bourbon stout...
Bret M on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When adding to secondary

you will want to boil it up in about 1-2 cups of water...this will sterilize and remove oxygen. Then you need to be able to transfer without introducing oxygen so a siphon would be the recommended way to add it once boiled in water.
