I made a beer with 8 oz of lactose (5 gallon batch) added with 10 minutes left in the boil. The beer was a chocoate cherry stout i got from a ski resort over the winter and the beer was black but not heavy. it was a stout for sure but one that was light feeling in the stomach, i had a 24 oz stein with a meal and had no problem going out to snowboard the rest of the day. anyways i found a recipe to brew and it had lactose in it. I made the recipe and after i bottled it and opened one the lactose floated to the top of the glass. It is terrible to drink. the beer tasted really bad. I have had it sitting in an 80 degree room for a couple months to let some of the bad cherry flavor die down, which is working and I found if you drink it from the bottle and tilt the bottom above your lips you dont get lactose in your mouth. Has anyone had lactose float to the top like this?
