4.8 / 5.011 ReviewsEssential in making light lagersNot only does it add fermentables, it thins out the beer and keeps it as light as possible. Because of the cost I only use it where I need it. For an ale I would just add more grain.March 2, 2014Good addition for making light lagersI've been experimenting with light lagers and rice is something the large breweries use to lighten the beer. It adds fermentables and lightens and thins the beer. I would use it again.January 11, 2014Thins out my lagersThe Rice Syrup is a good addition to my lagers. It thins them, lightens them, and adds some alcohol, without affecting the flavor. I would even try it in ales, if I wanted more alcohol.November 12, 2013Adds alcohol without flavor or colorIts a great way of adding some kick to your beer without affecting the malt/hop balance. Its perfect for lighter lagers which are light and you want to keep that way but add some alcohol._x000D_October 5, 2013For making light lagersI have been experimenting with making light lagers and have been using rice solids because they add no color. It adds alcohol, so I can use less malt. These beers don't have so much flavor though.July 18, 2013Adds fermentables but no color or flavorIts good for adding a kick to my beer, and it's good in light lagers because it won't darken them. I used it in a few experiments and while it works, its a novelty item, and too expensive for general purpose use. If you need it for a light lager then go ahead. For anything else just add more grain or ferment lower and longer, and you will get more alcohol. Add in some corn sugar too.July 9, 2013Good for light ales/lagersThis product will help increase the alcohol content of your brew without imparting hardly any taste or color. I've only used it on light ales, but would not recommend for higher gravity/darker brews.April 24, 2013it really worksI used this in a Pilsner, just to try it out. It did increase the alcohol by close to a percent without affecting the taste. I think it added to the head retention as I had a bigger and longer lasting head, with nice lacing. I can see using this in lighter beers, since adding malt will make them not light anymore. The cost is kind of on the high side for a pound.March 8, 2013As an experimentIn Radical Brewing Moser was talking about this so I wanted to try it._x000D_I added the full pound to a light lager, and it did kick up the alcohol more than half a percent. I didn't really notice any flavor or aroma.January 21, 2013For "moonshine" beerI experimented with this, just for the heck of it. It does add alcohol, and will thin out your beer, and not add taste. So what? Why bother with it? Just mash a little cooler, at say 149F and you will end up with a dryer, more fermentable wort. I won't use this again.December 31, 2012
