regardless of what yeast you choose to use, the left hand milk stout that i have fermenting with us-05 (got the recipe off of here) is so delicious that i might just go take another hydro reading just to drink it. it seems that using my typical APA/IPA yeast for a stout is odd, but its good so far, gonna let it sit for a few more weeks.

Yeah so after I posted that curiosity got the better of me. I went back and I did a bit more research into the subject top vs bottom fermenting cold, etc and I see the guys point an ale is an ale because it uses top fermenting yeast at ale temps - the ingredients aren't what really makes it an ale vs a lager it's the fermentation. Is that safe to say? Anyway, it still seems like he was just being a style nazi though. It's homebrewing so unless your entering in a bjcp contest... I AGREE completely with the guy who said why not experiment? Also you are absolutely correct, who's to say your experimenting doesn't revolutionize beer again - good example too, I like the relation to Baltic porters - you have schooled me in them. It is one style, admittedly, I know little about.(except that they are delicious as I've had a few but never knew what made them "baltic") so thanks for that because I now have an idea of what I may try to look into and brew next...

Woodland - thought I'd share this with you. After doing some more homework on lactose, it seems 1# lactose should add about .045 in one gallon... So across a 5 gallon batch .045/5=.009 you should be able to take OG and FG with the lactose and just subtract .009 from each one to have your values with the lactose factored out.
