Lactose adds the sweetness part. Only thing I could suggest would be to up the oats.

Has anyone noticed that you when you plug this into beersmith, you get an estimated FG of 1.009? This confuses me...

brewed it and just bottled this evening. Since I didn't have the Milk Sugar at the time of brewing I used S-04 yeast instead of Windsor to add some of that sweetness that the Lactose sugar would add. tasted GREAT going into the bottles, chocolaty and sweet at the same time. Almost like a dessert stout.

If you were aiming for sweetness windsor was a better choice: that particular strain canīt ferment maltotriose a complex sugar form by three glucose molecules, there is around 10% of this sugar in a typical wort, so finishes higher than S-04

Donīt mind about estimated FG in Beersmith, they just have the aparent attenuation of the yeast strain and aply that to your recipe, it doesnīt have to finish there.

hmmm, didn't realize that, I knew S-04 finished sweeter than S-05 and I thought windsor was a clean dry yeast like S-05. well, still tastes great and I'm kinda glad it's not any sweeter than it already is. kind of a "milk chocolate" taste to it with a full lb of oats in there.

I guess I meant that it confuses me that beersmith would contain a bug for so long without being fixed. I'm sure tons of newer brewers have used the software with lactose and been disappointed.

So, I put together the ingredients for this @ http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/brew-builder

Unfortunately, I received an email that they are out of stock on the Briess Golden Light Dry Extract. Can I substitute this with the Amber or Dark Dry Extract without destroying this beer?
