What it does :
Maltodextrin is an adjunct sugar. It will provide increased body, without notable contribution to the taste or fermentable sugars to your beer.
What it is:
Maltodextrin is a common food additive naturally derived from corn, rice, or potato starch. It is classified as a carbohydrate.
Maltodextrin can be 4-8 percent of your grist. You can also use it as a priming sugar before bottling to enable carbonation. Of course, the actual amount you need depends on the style of beer that you are making. Use our brewing calculators to compute the exact amount you need to achieve your specific original gravity and color targets.
Add maltodextrin directly to the boiling wort.
