Maltodextrin - missed ingredient.

(1/2) > >>

brewtopia:
So I just made a dunkel wiezen from a kit, and I forgot to add the maltodextrin during the boil. I just put the beer in bottles, adn noticed I missed this step.

What is this going to effect?

richardt:
To a smaller degree, the sweetness.  To a larger degree, the mouthfeel and body.

dmtaylor:
I'm feeling blunt -- maltodextrin is a dumb ingredient for most beers, including dunkelweizen.  You're probably much better off without it.  Don't sweat it, not at all.

brewtopia:
oh great! I thought I totally screwed this batch up.

+1 - I'd be suspicious of any kit that had that as an ingredient. Where did you get the kit from?
