I recently brewed a milk stout ( I did a 10 gallon batch with 2lbs lactose (. I split the
batch into 5 gallons with just milk stout, and the other 5 I added chocolate nibs. I haven't

I rigged up an Arduino PID and used it to cook sous vide chicken breast the same afternoon. It
helped that I already knew how to measure temperature with a DS18B20. may be talking to you
