LDC Lactose, 1lb

  • The practice of adding lactose to beer has existed for centuries since brewers learned that adding lactose (milk sugar) to beer imparts a pleasant residual sweetness, creamy texture and smooth flavor. This is possible since lactose is a complex sugar and not fermentable by traditional beer yeast. Lactose can be used in Milk Stouts, Oatmeal Stouts, Porters, Brown Ales and any style in which a residual sweetness is desired. Lactose should be added in the kettle and boiled in the wort.
