what will the impact on the beer be? im also thinking of adding 200g of café light malt to add some coffey flavor.
My experience with the lactose was not good. The beer hit all its marks while brewing, had the correct FG, conditioned in good time, and everything was great (wonderful porter!) until I was in the middle of my third-to-last six. I started to get more and more foaming, and by the time I was down to the last six I couldn't pour a 12 oz bottle into an Imperial pint and not have it foam over. Consensus at the time seemed to be a late fermentation involving the lactose and, maybe, lactobacillus
