Beano is something like amylase I think, which breaks up complex starches into sugars, making them fermentable. Can you post the recipe? Might have something that gives lots of starch to the wort.

you probably dont need the beano. The problem with it is, unless you denature the amalayse enzyme before bottling, you never really know when it will stop converting starches to sugars.

It might eventually stop working anyway. pH in the mouth is ~5.6, but ~4.1 in beer.

From what I have heard from other members, don't use it. I remember reading (I think it was David_42?) about a batch that finished out terribly dry because of it and it took forever.
