Freezing Lactose
« on: January 13, 2016, 09:05:12 PM »
I recently bought some lactose to use in a milk stout, but I think I want to delay brewing that until later this year for more of a fall beer.  Think I should freeze the lactose?

That or just vacuum seal it and call it good. It should freeze fine though.

You will be fine with a simple vacuum seal.
