Default Got lactose to sweeten Mikes Hard Punch clone.. Question..

I have 5 gallons and its watery, do I add around 1 1/2 cups of lactose to sweeten?

Im hoping to bottle today if it tastes right.

Do you treat it like a primer?

Adding it to water boiling and then putting into the bottling bucket?

Thanks.

That'll work - toss it in with your priming sugar, boil it for ten minutes to sanitize.

Necrothread, why? The OP ain't been around for more than three years.

The lactose is nonfermentable, why would bottle bombs be an issue, anyway?
