Any chance there are any oils in your brewing system?

I suppose there's always a chance, but thinking over my cleansing and sanitation steps, I don't think the probability it that high. I'll be sure to keep a keener eye out for something like that next time though. I've not had a problem with head retention on any other brews. I haven't noticed any oils forming over the top either.

Still tastes good though, just the presentation is lacking.

I really don't have a good answer for you. This recipe seems to give pretty good head , so I don't know what it could be. If the lactose was incorrectly packaged (ie not lactose), you would probably would have tasted it.

Whew! Just made it through all 28 pages and I think this is going to be my 2nd(ish) attempt at brewing some beer and this is my first post. I saw this recipe this morning and bought the ingredients at my LHBS during my lunch break. I decided to add .5 lbs of oats and only going to go 4 oz of the Lactose so wish me luck!! My first brewing attempt was Graff's cider/beer which is on its 2nd week in primary. Cheers everyone!

Just brewed this as my 2nd AG BIAB brew. Hit my OG spot on. Followed the recipe exactly using Dennys as well. Now the wait begins...I think it will be homebrewers that first invent the time machine, the motivations there.

medically induced coma might do the same thing, less expensive than the plutonium needed to power your flux capacitor too.

2 weeks in the bottle and this beer is delicious. Thanks NCBeernut!

So, I brewed a half batch of this up. 4 week fermentation and 1 week secondary, as I do with all my beers now. To the secondary I added 4 oz of caramel coffee syrup and 1oz on chocolate extract, as I have a penchant for adding extracts and syrups to my "off-centered" brews. After a week on gas, this beer is something special.

It takes the idea of a great milk stout, without too much of the lactose sweetness, and raises it to a new level. Roasty and smooth, yet with a nice caramel depth, this just earned a place in my rotation. Btw, I agree that it is much better when allowed to sit and warm up a little.
