    I think it would be better without the milk, I think the milk and cascade do not play well but Ive been wrong too lol

    It actually wasn't bad with the cascade making up a small part of the hop bill. It had to settle in the keg for a month but it did really well at the brew fest yesterday. A restaurant chose it to be brewed and put on tap. I say try it out, just let it sit because the high ibu at first will be undrinkable. once it settles and the lactose mellows it out, its a pretty good brew.

    If you try it out Ozarks, let it sit for a good month. It was almost undrinkable until the hops mellowed out.

    thats what I was thinking so a milder flavored hop with the same ibu might be better for the finish
