What it does :
Malto-dextrin is used to enhance body and mouthfeel in low gravity beers.
What it is:
This non-fermentable sugar is a chief element of malted grain. It is available in powder form.
How it works:
Low gravity beers may lack sufficient malt character, specifically protein compounds, to provide satisfactory mouthfeel. Malto-dextrin can be added to the brew to compensate.
This material is not fermentable but contains the protein compounds needed for mouthfeel and body.
Add up to 8 ounces per 5 gallon batch. Add during the wort boil.
This additive may cause chill haze in light-colored beers.
