Will be brewing this for sure, what happens if I leave the milk sugar out and add malto dextrine instead?

Sounds like a winner! Thanks a lot, but one quick question. Beersmith defaults the addition of lactose @ 60 min. The recipe states last 10 min. What would the difference be with the additional 50 minutes of boil time. Appreciate the info thanks.

It sounds like lactose can be added pretty much whenever. I'm too lazy to cite the other thread that stands for the proposition though.

My OG was 1.071... that put my efficiency at about 81%, that's a first. I'm usually in the low 70's, cant wait to try this one, thanks for the recipe.

Hey, i am planning on brewing this on Christmas day and was wondering what kind of milk sugar that you recommend.

I'm not the author of the recipe, but I think I can answer your question. Milk sugar is simply lactose, and any lactose would do. Just make sure it's 100% lactose and not a mixture of other stuff.

This sounds like a great recipe. I just told a friend I'd make a celebration ale in honor of the birth of his first child. I think a (mother's) milk stout is appropriate! Now I've just got six months to test and brew! Thanks.

We are going to be brewing this tomorrow. Scaled to 5.5 gallons with beer smith and then rounded the amounts to nearest .25# Should be awesome. Also using WL-001 California ale yeast and Maris Otter Pale Malt.

Brewed this up a couple months ago. Drinking my first (bottle) right now. It's really, really good. Great recipe! I haven't had the left Hand in a while so I can't say how is stacks up, but stand alone, it's the best stout I've made. Thanks!

Thumbs up for this recipe; I just kegged this and after 2 1/2 weeks it's spot on to LHMS, comparing the two side by side my brew using this recipe tastes better IMO.

Lots of complex flavors going on in here, it's slightly hoppier than LHMS but turned out fantastic. Thanks!

Anyone who brewed this care to share their thoughts/feedback? Seems like quite a few brewed this but not many people came back to this thread to say how they liked it etc.

Nice looking recipe. I think I will try this out soon. This will be the first stout which I will dispense with the stout faucet and nitrogen set-up which I just picked up.

Just poured one of these earlier tonight. Great beer. Very close to the original. Nothing I would really change about the recipe.

Just opened the first of this all-grain batch. I used less hops than called for as it seems a bit high. Turned out pretty close. My ABV was a bit higher but you can't really tell a difference due to how flavorful it all is. Thanks for posting the recipe

is there a good fermentation temperature to shoot for with s-05 in this recipe?

Thanks for sharing, I brewed this up a couple weeks ago, just kegged and it tastes pretty damn good.

I upped the grain bill equal % to get the SG to 1.071, left the lactose at 1 lb., used US-05. I also wanted to use leaf hops so I ended up substituting 1oz Northern Brewer (60 min) and 1oz Fuggles (10 min), and even though its not finished aging or carbed, I think the hop balance is great. My 4th AG batch and so far it's looking like the best...

We brewed this one.. absolutely amazing. We did a blind taste test between this and the LHMS, and it was actually better than LHMS!
Took this and 3 other batches of our brews to family for Thanksgiving, and everyone raved about it. Out of all 4 batches that we took, our Milk Stout disappeared first. Every single person that tasted it said they would buy it if it was for sale.

Thank you thank you thank you for the recipe...
