The protein will curdle, but then it just precipitates out of the beer. Obviously their is a history to using milk in beer. I don't think they used lactose when milk stout was invented.
This sounds delicious. I have access to a dairy farm with real raw milk and trying to find things to do with it. Beer would be a welcomed addition. Could you direct me to some more specific directions to attempt this please.

I was also wondering if i could just make my own lactose out of the milk?

I have access to raw milk from a dairy farm and trying to find things to do with it. Would you have any idea of this recipe?! Would also love to know how to make my own lactose out of raw milk.

Going to try this except with evaporated milk during the boil (mostly bc i want the concentrated form of the solids) as far as deriving lactose from milk, take whey from a cheese/yogurt process and add ethanol, the lactose should be insoluble and precipitate out, the outline of this method is described here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactose, not sure of the minimum purity the ethanol has to be (everclear would prbs work best) but the greater the purity, the more yield you should get. Do a little more reserach and see what you come up with. I'm looking to add sweetness (lactose) and creaminess (proteins) to a stout by adding the evaporated milk. I'm not worried about the fat ruining the head bc I am confident that if I overpitch the yeast a little they'll do a good job of sucking that up and leaving it at the bottom of the fermenter. Will post pics and a detailed experimental process overview this weekend. If it works out okay, it'll be a heck of a lot cheaper (and more available) than just adding lactose, and I could cut flaked oats/barley out of my bill as well, guess we'll see what happens. SCIENCE.

Default History of Real Milk Stout

"Historically, they are known as "Milk" or "Cream" stouts, as the full body of this beer was originally borne from incorporating milk/unfermented sugar before bottle. The classic surviving example of milk stout is Mackeson's, who claimed that "each pint contains the energizing carbohydrates of 10 ounces of pure dairy milk". Milk stout was believed to be nutritious, and was recommended to nursing mothers. In 1875, John Henry Johnson first sought a patent for a milk beer, based on whey, lactose, and hops.[1] [Although, Mackeson is now made with lactose instead of whey], it still bears on its label the milk churn that has been its trademark since it was first brewed in 1907."

I boiled the skim milk with ginger and cardamom. Cooled it down in the pan with the lid on. Then I mixed this into the carboy with my beer as I transferred it to secondary. I let it sit for about a month at room temperature (~65 degrees). A large amount of protein settled out in the first few days. It seems like using whey could be better because most of the protein is already removed and can be used to make cheese.

Lamb-ic is ok, but is better if you blend it after fermenting with a rosemary-mint gruit.
