Description

Give your homebrew that refining touch.

Adding Maltodextrin to your extract brew will help you fine-tune the body and mouthfeel without affecting the flavor. The Maltodextrin molecule is a chain of sugars between 4 and 20 dextrose units in length. That means it is only 3% fermentable by brewer's yeast, and so will contribute body to the finished beer. It is naturally present in all finished beers, up to 6% by weight, but the grains that yield it in All Grain brews don’t respond well to steeping in extract batches.

Our maltodextrin is composed of .5% dextrose, 2.5% Maltose, 3.5% maltotriose, 93.5% higher saccharides, and is made from corn. It is often also referred to as Dextrin or Dextrine Powder.

Add to the wort at the same time as the extracts.

Does this replace the priming sugar?
William Brian Monroe on Jan 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I use maltodextrin to add body and mouthfeel, primarily in making rootbeer. It is a polysaccharide and not as easily digestible by yeast as dextrose. Dextrose is chemically identical to glucose. It’s made from corn and easily digested by residual yeast in your finished beer. I would use dextrose or corn sugar for priming. You could also use other simple sugars if you want to add flavor or have residual sweetness from the sugar. The dextrose will be fully digested by the yeast and doesn’t add any noticeable flavor.

Round out that Stout
My friend wants a smoother stout, using this to get a fuller taste. Add for full boil, 60 min.
