Default Brewvint Alcohol Boost from AHS

Has anyone ever used BrewVint Alcohol Boost from Austin Homebrew Supply?

Austin Homebrew Supply

The website says add it whenever you add your other sugars and adjuncts. I wasn't sure what that meant. So I called them, and they weren't really sure.

I was thinking 20 minutes from the end of the boil would be appropriate.

What do you think?

That stuff is just a blend of sugars, so 20 minutes before the end of the boil will work fine

Have you ever used it? Does it add off flavors? Like a boozy hot mouth feel or anything? They claim it doesn't. Its only 14oz, I would figure it doesn't. I could probably replicate the same thing with table sugar.

I've used it in my beers before, usually my hopped up pale ales. I can't pick up any off flavors or dryness from it and I've been very satisfied from the results.

Although, I don't think table sugar would be an adequate substitue, this has a much finer texture and I think it's a blend of sugars.

Give it a try.
