I plan to try this one next. I have a question about some of the ingredients used at bottling. You have listed 8 oz lactose and 12 oz light dme. Is it safe to assume that you mean either/or, or do i use both to batch prime?

Use both. The lactose will not ferment. It is added for sweetness. The light dme will ferment. It is for CO2.

Based on the calculator in BeerSmith, the amount of LME used for bottling gives you a carb level of 4 volumes of this really what was intended? That seems a bit extreme...

Do I skip the lactose and dme if I am kegging

Keith S. 08/10/2014 at 02:02am
The DME, yes, as that's to give you carbonation in the bottle...the lactose is for sweetness, which you want.
