(Makes 5 gallons) Jim was looking for a dark, smooth, creamy mouth feel stout just like an Australian stout he had tasted years ago. Over the years, Jim found a clone that was close but needed some small changes. After many trials and test batches, he came up with this recipe that is very drinkable when it is fresh. It will get smoother with a couple months of aging and creaminess added by the lactose makes this a very good winter warming stout. Jim hopes you enjoy this beer as much as he has. Jim recommends WLP004 Irish ale yeast.

Loooove Belching Beavers Peanut Butter Milk Stout, looking to start somewhere.

Absolutely Love this. Serve it to "non-craft beer drinkers," and they are hesitant to try, now ask for it everytime they're over to visit. I think they're here for the beer.

Not impressed
Worst kit packing ever. No yeast,grain bag, bottle caps. Beer itself might turn out good, but the kit was horrible.

Awesome Milk Stout
The stout was exceptional, smooth, creamy. About 1.5 in primary, 2 weeks in secondary. My buddies tried to drink it all when we played poker. Goes great with cigars! I also tried the Sweet Stout recipe, but Jim's recipe is more what I wanted. Highly recommended.

Nice Milk Stout
I've made many Stouts in the past but this was my first Milk Stout and the results were great, smooth and creamy mouth feel with medium to full body. I modified the recipe with some flaked oats and some Bourbon Chips.
The Bourbon effect was minimal but noticeable although I would prefer more Bourbon flavor.

the best milk stout ever
brewed about 5 different milk stouts 9 months ago...after aging in the beer cave a taste test was done.....the smoothest most flavorful beer emerged....buy this one, and let it mellow...excellent beer sir!!!

Great Stout
Third batch of my brewing experience. Awesome flavor. Non beer drinkers like it. Beer drinkers see the dark color and expect something harsh. To their surprise, it's mellow. I will definitely brew this again next Winter.

Good, but light
On the whole, a really good brew. Smooth and creamy, even if a bit on the thin side.

Love this!
Awesome stout! Good mouthfeel! This beer is on my regular brew schedule in winter.

A most excellent brew. Hints of coffee and chocolate as expected but not quite as much "milk" (lactate) finish as I hoped. I will definitely brew this again but perhaps add a bit more lactate.

Great tasting, although slightly thin stout
Brewed this to recipe, but added fresh vanilla bean in secondary, which provided a subtle aroma and luscious flavor on top of the roasted grain. My only complaint is that the body is a bit thin, even with the lactose addition. Still, a good beer that I would make again.

Nice beer
Slight aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt with a hint of coffee and caramel. Sweet finish with a mild bitterness at the finish. Not as sweet as I was expecting as the coffee flavor is dominant as in a traditional stout. Very good beer, suggest some chocolate or some cocoa nibs to mellow out flavor....would make again.
