100% malto- dextrin

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

So after too much reading, name interpretation and misinformation. I have come to the conclusion malto-dextrin is a corn starch and an unfermentable ingredient used to add body and head to a beer. I am planning to use a liquid form of this in half of a brew at priming to compare the difference. I intend to bulk prime with the usual sugar (130 grams) to the whole volume. Will then add an additional 100 grams of liquid malto-dextrin to half of the remaining brew whilst bottling.

My question is can I do this confidently without over carbonating and popping bottles as its unfermentable?

Will there be any other surprises?

 

Cheers.

They won't over carbonate, because as you've said it's unfermentable. All you can do is try it and see if you can notice any differences between the two, and which one you like better.
