So this can be added with your malt as well...during the boil?

call me crazy but if it is only marginally fermentable, in the 32 ppg range, why does beersmith not account for a gravity increase? it appears a pound in 5 gallons will yield like 5 points..

Because gravity IS affected by it. It will give you a higher starting gravity, but much of those gravity points wont be fermentable meaning you will have a higher final gravity as well.

Right, same goes to lactose or other sugars that arent entirely fermentable. I only know this because is used it to backsweeten apfelwein. My SG went from .996 to about 1 when I sweetened one serving with it
