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

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.

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

I like Milk Stouts, Can I add Lactose sugar to the boil and get a Milk Stout? How much? When?

BEST ANSWER: Lactose is a great addition to a stout to give it silky texture and great mouth feel. As an unfermentable sugar it adds great body and a sweet touch to your favorite stout. It's also being used by Brewers in other beers now as well, including IPAs, fruit beers, etc. The standard addition of lactose for a 5 gallon batch varies but many prefer 1 pound with 15 minutes left in the boil. Make sure you take this into consideration in your original gravity as lactose is in unfermentable sugar and will result in a higher original gravity than anticipated .
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.
