Description

One fourth as sweet as cane sugar (sucrose) and non-fermentable by yeast. Use lactose when you want to sweeten a dry or bitter wine or beer. Also used to add sweetness and body to beers such as sweet stouts (milk stouts). Add a small amount, mix, and taste. Lactose can be added until desired flavor is obtained. There is no fermentation period or rest needed, so wine/beer may be bottled immediately. Add to hot water and mix thoroughly before adding to wine/beer. Add at end of fermentation, before bottling.

Usage: 8 oz. per 5 gallons, or to taste
Common name: Milk sugar

Ferment at a lower temp and add the sweetness later. Solid option for that.

This adds body for a chewy mouthfeel. Great in stouts or other big beer needing body.

Uh, it's lactose... Had the appropriate amount of milk sugary-ness.

I used it for back sweetening.
I used this to get a slight creamy flavor while back sweetening a batch of Chocolate Mead, .It gave it a nice creamy flavor on the finish.

I use a pound if this in my milk stout. It dissolves easily and provides a nice smooth taste.

It works just like it is supposed to. I brewed a coffee chocolate cream stout and used the lactose as a sweetening agent.

Great Product!
I use this when I make my Chocolate Milk Stout recipe. Really shines in this style and you can smell the creamy aroma in the beer head, and taste the creamy goodness in the beer itself! Good for all milk stout recipes.
