I am wanting to make a Milk Stout and I need Milk Sugar/Lactose. I checked a Save On and with a health food store in my city, but neither has ever heard of it.

Any idea where what type of store I should be looking for that would sell Milk Sugar/Lactose? I know I can order it online, but it would be shipping from the other end of Canada.

Unfortunately it isn't something you are likely to find except at a brewing supplier. There must be somebody in Canada who stocks it. Maybe this thread could help:

I see you're in BC. Bosa beer and wine supplies in Burnaby carries lactose.

Try these guys.

http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Healt...1-lb-454-g/657

Use the coupon code BUY123 (gives $5 off your first order; $10 if you spend over $40)

I think I got 8 lbs of lactose for like 23 dollars shipped. I'm not 100% sure that they ship to Canada but I got that info from a Canadian, so I would like to think so.

For what it's worth, I've brewed with actual milk to get lactose in.
I was doing a Cream Ale, and forgot to pick up lactose at my LHBS. Easy enough to add real milk, though.

According to the nutrition label, you get 11g of Lactose per cup of milk. So, if you're hard up (as I was), you can get ~.4 pounds of lactose from a gallon of milk.

Throw in a little extra Irish Moss to pull down some of the milk proteins. You'll still get a heck of a trub, but also some very tasty beer.

This is NOT good advice. Do NOT add milk to your beer. A cream ale shouldn't have lactose in it to begin with, nevermind real milk.

Yes, this is some of the poorer advice I've seen. If you don't believe, just read through this thread.
