nope. it just means you won't get fermentable sugar.... it rasies both OG and FG.

And a lot of starch usually means cloudy beer.

Can't you add dextrose to your boil instead of using Carapils?

I think that the carapils is "stewed" to converd starch to dextrins before kilning. For htis reason you should not get too much unconverted starch and should be able to steep it. This is the article Walker referenced and where I am drawing this conclusion from. I could however, be very, very wrong. It happens all the time http://byo.com/mrwizard/776.html Also, dextrose is glucose is corn sugar, so adding dextrose will only add fermentables
