Default Alcohol Boost

Has anyone used the alcohol boost from AHS? I ordered some and wanted to know if it really doesn't effect flavor. It seems to just be fermentable sugar. Also, do you think I will need to lengthen fermentation?

Nope, it's a dextrose-type sugar mixture if I remember correctly. That will ferment out quicker than your other fermentables in the beer will.
