Default Adding lactose when kegging

I have been brewing some diffrent cream stouts that require adding lactose when kegging. What would be the best method? Add lactose to some boiled water and add to keg ( Iam thinking that way ) or add it directly in dry? Also, What would happen if lactose was added to the last 15 min of the boil? Thanks.

I've done both ways:
end of boil in the kettle it wont ferment so it stays sweet, or like you said, boil some in water and add at kegging time.

I wouldn't just add it dry though-you want it to dissolve into solution by boiling. Then add it to the keg first, then rack the beer into the keg-it will be mixed in well then.
