Toucan Stout

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

So I'm throwing down a toucan stout today. I got some lactose and I'm just wondering how much to add???

Should I just throw it in the fermenter with the dex?

Cheers!

Yea I know, but I was hoping the lactose added a bit of creaminess?? 

Dont think I should use?

Hi Ryan,

Some Brewers add about 250g of Lactose to sweeten the mix to take away the Tang.

Yes I would bung it in with the Dext.

All the best with the Toucan Stout.

Have you watched the King R's Toucan Stout vid?

Cheers

Never used lactose myself but I have made that recipe before and it is quite a hearty brew. I'm not sure whether lactose would improve it or not, it's not designed as a milk stout. It's up to you but if you do use it, it just gets dissolved and added with the rest of the ingredients at the beginning.

I did it! It's in. I added 150g 

Once it's bottled and aged for a few months I'll let you know!
