Milk StoutMilk Stout

£22.00 incl VAT

Inspired by Left-hand Brewing’s milk stout recipe.  A milk stout uses some lactose sugar in the brew which the yeast can not digest into alcohol.  This means the sugar remains in the finished beer adding a subtle sweet smoothness to the stout.


While tasty at any time, this is a great recipe to age.  As it ages, the stout gets more and more depth of flavour and a lovely matured smoothness.

*This pack is ingredients only – you will need a large pot and our equipment kit to brew your beer.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    It was unbelievably easy to do an all-grain brew! I’ve wanted to do a milk stout for ages but been really put off by the difficulty of getting proper instructions. This came with incredibly clear instructions that were super easy to follow and I found the videos v useful. It’s only my 3rd brew but really wish I’d started with one from this site rather than struggle to make my first few without proper guidance. Highly recommended for those new to brewing or just people who want good results. Milk stouts are hard to track down in shops so now I can make my own with ease

    Dear Homebrewtique,

    I read that piece in the Guardian supplement recently and bought a starter kit from you to brew a batch of Southpaw. I’d never attempted home-brewing before and, on my first read-through the recipe, was bewildered by the process. I perservered and spent a happy few hours in the kitchen with all the kit, wondering what on earth my creation would taste like. Your instructions were clear, concise, really easy to follow and all seemed to go pretty well. On tasting the ensuing brew, I was totally amazed. A complet e idiot who had never brewed anything at all had created possibly the nicest tasting beer I have ever drunk! I simply could not believe that I had created this amazing stuff at my first attempt. My partner agreed – she too was overawed at my apparent genius.

    Thank you so much for creating an incredible product and here’s to many more equally succesful brews.
