So, why Lactose?
- Provides a milky, creamy, vanilla-like flavour and a soft mouth feel to the beer
- Suitable for making stouts and dark beers
- Doesn’t effect the colour of the Beer
Lactose is an off-white solid sugar or syrup that adds no colour to beers. It is used as a priming sugar and the dosage rates are in the range of 1 to 2 kg per hectolitre of finished beer. The rates can be found by dosing small amounts and tasting the beer, stopping when the desired profile is reached.
