Great addition
I use this in my kits to give the batch more body. I have never had any problem.

Adds body
I've been playing with true session beers, under 4% ABV. This stuff is an easy way to get body and mouthfeel.

Thicken your beer if it came out too thin
Sometimes my beers over attenuate and are too thin. After moving to the secondary I taste it. I add in two to three ounces and see how that fixes it. If more is needed, I add another ounce. I add between 4 and 8 ounces. Just mix it with beer and then add it back in.

Nice way to add body
This is a great product that gives no extra taste or flavor but boosts up the body of the beer.

Works well in stouts
I have used maltodextrine several times to add body to Irish Dry Stouts and it works very well. Only about 8 oz is needed in five gallons to make an appreciable difference. I recommend keeping at least one bag around in the brewhouse just in case.

Easy way to thicken up thin beer
Every so often some of my beers come out a little thin and I add several ounces to add more body. It adds no taste and is easy to use. Just boil up some water let it sit in it to dissolve and cool, then add it to the bottling bucket.

an experts secret
Maltodextrin is underused in my opinion. I use it to enhance a few of my beers. I can mash lower and add some in to get a nice thick beer, thats got plenty of alcohol and not too sweet.

Helps add chewiness
Some of my beers over attenuate if I get a high efficiency so I add a quarter pound of Maltodextrine to even them out. It can even be added at bottling time. Taste a sample and add as needed. I boil it in a cup of water stir it up and pour it in.

Great for thin beers
Some beers I make come out a little on the thin side. Maybe I mash too low, or the yeast are extra efficient. I add 4-6 ounces of Maltodextrin to thicken up the beer so it doesn't taste watery. There is no effect on taste either and it doesn't affect the alcohol.

Most of the reviews say that this adds to the "mouth feel". My beers seem to lose their head pretty fast. Should I use this or Carapils?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's a good question, but it is a bit like asking if I should bake a pie from cherries or from apples. Carapils is a barley, it is simply a lighter version of the crystal malts. Maltodextrin comes from corn, (although it could come from many starches). Both will increase mouthfeel; both will increase body in your beer. If I wanted to increase head retention, I would probably opt for maltodextrine. However, that might be based more on a personal preference than any objective facts. You should be aware that several unrelated things could cause poor head retention including improper rinsing of containers, improper carbonation, oils that may be in some of your ingredients, etc. Hope that this helps. :)
Is this brand certified gluten free?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe all brewing maltrodextrine are gluten free. Regardless of the source (potato, rice, corn, wheat) the starch is so heavily processed that the proteins are all typicallydestroyed rendering it gluten free. However, having said that, ID Carlson's maltodextrine is sourced from corn.
