Tough Udder Vanilla Milk Stout
Grain Bill:

9 lbs 2-row (US)
14 oz. Crystal 120
8 oz. Melanoiden
7. oz Roasted Barley
6. oz Chocolate malt
4 oz Flaked Barley
4 oz. Carafa III
4 oz. Flaked Oats
8 oz. Rice Hulls


.5 oz Warrior (60 min)
.5 oz Liberty (15 min)

Other Sugar etc.

1 lb. Lactose (60 min)
Irish Moss (10 min)
Tahitian Vanilla Bean (2 Beans 10 min)

White Labs 013 London Ale

2 more tahitian Vanilla Beans added during Secondary.

This is one of my favorite recipes and a standard at my house. It's a little like a Left Hand Milk Stout with the addition of vanilla if I had to compare it to something.

I did a slightly modded version of this the other day, changing the base malt to British 2-row and using WLP-005 British Ale yeast instead. Looking forward to doing a side by side comparison.

Interested in knowing your thoughts on the after the mod...

I can tell you so far from my taste tests as I go along that the second version tastes much breadier. I imagine that is from the use of British 2-row versus the U.S. They have both been in secondary for about a week so far, I will be kegging them in a few days.

more to come.
