Looking to gain some insight from the experts online here....
1.) Lactose - A milk-based sugar that is not fully fermentable by beer yeast.
- Is this the primary way to make Sweet Beers? (yeast eats everything else)
- e.g. Dragon's Milk Clone (High Alcohol, sweet beer)
2.) Dextrine (e.g Carapils) - used to increase foam, head retention, sweetness, and body.
- Is this stuff used a lot and when? Dextrine is also used to make glue (Wiki)..., any bad side effects?
- Have read not to use more than .5 lbs in a 5 gallon batch else it affects the taste.
