If yeast can't eat maltose why would it matter? I think this would save a step and keep the bugs ever-busy until the all maltose was gone. Plus anytime you're going in, you risk introducing oxygen for acetobater, right?

Sacc eats maltose but not maltodextrin.

Right, that is my mistake. Otherwise all the maltose from my malt would be useless.

That should have read:

I am interested to know the answer to this question as well...Personally I believe in your logic and don't understand why adding it at a later time is more beneficial than adding it during the boil..

Adding maltodextrin at a later time is used in my brewery to make a sour beer more "interesting" after a sample's taste/aroma isn't to my liking.

I also add it in the boil for my extract lambics, but that's because I know I'll need it.

Cool Beans. So adding Maltodextrin late in fermentation works. No longer do I need to worry about whether or not I mashed high enough for those non-fermentables to be present!
