Normally, you'd just add it to the boil but, no reason you can't add it to the bottling bucket.

Hey I am a noob, only on my second batch, but I thought lactose halted fermentation. Isn't it used to stop ferming in ciders so backsweetening can take place? So if you add lactose to a batch that isnt carbed wont it just keep the beer flat?

I usually add lactose in the last 5-10 minutes of the boil, but it should be fine to boil with priming sugar at bottling time. Chocolate cream stout...sounds good!

Lactose is milk sugar and is not fermentable. It's also only about 20% compared to Sucrose (table sugar).

I think you may have confused your compounds and the lactose may be used for the backsweetening. Usually it is Campden that halts fermentation in ciders or wines.

The first step to recovery is admitting the problem.
