What is a Milk Stout?

9/26/2016

Milk Stout, which is also called cream or sweet stout, is a stout containing lactose, a sugar derived from milk. Because lactose is unfermentable by beer yeast, it adds sweetness and body to the finished beer. Its dark color may give you a certain assumption, but these brews are silky, smooth, sweet and very easy to drink.



What is the shelf life for beer?


Shelf life describes the number of days a beer will retain its peak drinkability. In general, the shelf life for most beers is usually a maximum of four months if stored at room temperature, and 8-12 months if refrigerated properly and kept away from direct light.
