So I tasted the lactose by itself and also in a shot glass with some water. I didn't taste anything at all when it was just the crystals themselves. I did notice when it was mixed with water that water felt, I really don't know how to put this, fuzzy, kind of like a glass of water that had set at the bedside all night and some of the next day.
Like I said earlier I might just go ahead and bottle it and try brewing it again changing either the yeast or the mash temp or go really crazy and change both. At the very least I have many friends in the beer club that will help me consume it and "diagnose" the problems in it.
