You know, I had a client call me fat the other day. Not even one of MY clients, one of the boss' clients that I work with on occassion. Met him up front, he looked at me and said "You're putting on some weight, aren't you?" He's not a guy that I'm "chummy" with at all - haven't even seen him in a year and a half. Kinda threw me for a loop. He's a realtor, so I decided on the spot, when it's time to buy the next house - I ain't going through him!

I have been wondering this for a while, so I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I made chai latte ale with skim milk. I added the milk when I transfered the beer to secondary. I didn't want milk fat in my beer because I think it would ruin the head. I was a little concerned at first that maybe the protein in the milk would spoil, but the results are a delicious clear and creamy chai ale. Obviously their is a history to using milk in beer. I don't think they used lactose when milk stout was invented.
