Great in stouts
Lactose is the sugar in milk, it's where we get the term 'lactose intolerant,' meaning difficulty digesting the sugars in dairy products. It is also the ingredient that gives 'milk' stouts their sweetness and creaminess. The lactose sugars are not converted to alcohol and Co2, thus giving that classic flavor found in Mackeson's XXX, Mothers Milk and many more.

Worked great in a milk stout
Added a bit of sweetness to counter act the bitterness of the dark malts. Also added a bit of creaminess/body to the finished product. Worked well.

Add some to the oatmeal stout
I add 4oz of lactose to Midwest's Oatmeal Stout kit and it comes out extra creamy.

Highly Recommended

Great flavor
Added 1lb of this to a stout along with some cocoa nibs to make a chocolate milk stout. It is amazing. great flavor without any extra bitterness or "fake" DME boost flavor that can occur with adjuncts. Very smooth.

Used in a Cream Stout
I've made a few cream/milk stouts and varied the amount of lactose I use. It does a good job of sweetening the beer, and balancing the roastiness of the malt. I suggest starting with 8 ounces and see what you think. I've gone as high as 16.

Adds sweetness to a milt stout
I brewed a clone of the Left Hand Milk Stout and used 10 ounces to add sweetness and some mouth feel. It nicely balanced th edarker, more bitter malts.

do you add up to 8oz per five gallons of wine or beverage like with maltadextrine?
Roger V on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Are you trying to back sweeten? Lactose and Maltodextrin are usually only used in beer making. If you need to sweeten a wine it is better to stabilize with Potassium sorbate and add regular sugar.
Can Lactose be used to back sweeten wine?
Philip H on Dec 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can. It will not ferment out, but keep in mind it has a thickness to it. Also, if used in excess it will add a chalky taste. I'd say no more than 1.5 brix worth.
