Notes

Boil up 1 l of water and dissolve the lactose in it. Then mix the hot water with 4 l cold, and mix the honey in it. Get the temperature to around 25 °C, pitch the yeast and begin primary fermentation. When the primary is over, dry hop for 2 days then cold crush. Prime it in bottles or kegs.
Lactose gives a little body and takes the edge of dryness.
