When me and PD made a Milk Stout (Mackeson clone) we added 1lb (450g) of lactose to the last 15mins of the boil in a 23/25 litre batch. To be honest it seems to mix better in cold water but hey ho.

"Where are you from" asked the man....."Swindon" I replied......"What part" he said...."Well, all of me" I replied.

I added 400g to my chocolate stout. If I remember correctly I mixed it with a little water and added it in the last 5 minutes.

Thats exactly what I done with my second batch, mixed it in 1 litre of cold/tepid water first then added it to the last 15 mins though as I was concerned about boiling it for to short a time. I have heard that others add it to 1 litre of cold water and then bring to the boil for 15 mins, leave it to cool right down and then add it to the fermenter pre aerating and yeast pitching.

I have just started drinking my first milk stout. Recipe called for 300g of lactose but 'add more if you want a sweeter beer'. I added 500g, it is very nice but I would add a little less next time, I suggest 400g.

It's perhaps not ideal (introduction of dissolved oxygen), but I've seen people boil it up and add to the FV. That way it gives you the flexibility of altering the dosage based on the FG etc.

Here you go, Whitbread added lactose to their Mackeson post fermentation.
