Body and sweetness come from lactose, although the beer itself is not big. Hops are added for entire boil because they should not dominate aroma in this style, but should only balance.

In last few minutes, stir in lactose and stir until well dissolved. Remove from heat and force chill. Transfer to primary fermenter and add water to top off to 5 gallons.
