Default Malto Dextrin

I ordered a Boddington's Clone. The recipe calls for 1/2lb of Malto Dextrin but they forgot to add it in the kit. Should I brew anyway today or should I make them send it and wait to brew?

Thanks

I would make them send it, but I think this stuff is 96% unfermentable, so you can probably add the stuff in before you bottle. It just adds body/mouthfeel and doesn't NEED to be there for fermentation. you can go ahead and brew while waiting for it.

Did they give you anything else? It may be labeled CaraPils.

carapils is a grain, malto-dextrin is a sugar.

Ah, I see. Mental note, Malto-Dextrin != Dextrin Malt.

Ahh.. i see the confusion. You are thinking of "Dextrin Malt" (aka carapils). Clay is talking about "Malto Dextrin" which is just a non-fermentable sugar. I agree, the names are similar enough to be confusing.

No they didn't. I called and the guy and he said it must have been packaged wrong. He said if I was brewing today to go ahead and brew without it and if I ordered from them again just make note of the previous mistake and they would add some kind of discount. I just wanted to check with you all to make sure it would be ok to make it without the malto dextrin. I am making a clone, and if that is part of the clone how the hell is the beer gonna taste now!

It will taste less-malty (less sweet) and more bitter. ie; it isn't going to taste like the Real Thing.

Seriously, I would make them send it to you and go ahead with your brewing now. When it comes time to bottle, add the malto-dextrin to the beer along with your priming sugar. Since the malto-dextrin is not fermentable, the beer should taste the same whether you add it at boil time or at bottling time.

Thanks Walker.

I just called them. They will send it out, and I will add it when I bottle.

Thanks Again.
