Lactose is a non-fermentable sugar used to sweeten Brown ales and Stouts. It gives a beer a creamy texture, or "milky" flavor as it is called in some countries.

Its the perfect conplement for my brew
Very good .Thanks
I'm always satisfied with the quality of the products and services offered by Midwest. Items are shipped quickly and a re packaged well. In the rare occasion and order is incorrect they rectify the issue promptly.
Goes well in a Cream stout. It's not digestible by the yeast so it adds to thickness and helps balance bitterness.
Lactose is a standard ingredient in cream/milk stouts, but I have also used it successfully in IPAs and Cream ales (unsurprisingly). It adds a nice, smooth sweetness to any beer and about 8-12 oz. will work just fine.
