    looks great
    the only thing I see thats odd is so much lactose, you can also sweeten it by mashing higher say 156 but guessing you want higher alcohol

    I had a question about that as well, but most 5 gal sweet/milk stouts call for 1 pound....so I doubled. Again going off the information from the LeftHand write up, is says 5-13% is good to go...lol large range there but IIRC I fall in the middle third of that range.

    As for ABV, never a factor when I brew....except to make sure things stay balanced, higher ABV means less in a session. I enjoy beer to much to drink myself silly with it... :lol: :lol: :lol:
