Alcohol Boost
 
So I noticed that AHS really pushes the 1% alcohol boost and says that it it odorless, flavorless, etc. Is this really true? Are there certain styles of beer that you wouldnt recommend using this in? It just seems to me that an extra 1% of alcohol should affect the taste a little bit. I tried to search for an answer to this but was unsuccessful. Thanks

Yeah my place has pushed it also. It will minimally effect the taste, especially in darker beers, lighter ones you will tell the difference with. dont bother with the booster, just toss an extra pound of DME, its cheaper to do that usually

isn't it just dextrose anyway?

Ya, they have a more expensive one that is half dme, and it's more than 100% dme of the same amount.

It is a little different. Forrest explains it a bit more here at Post #11 >> http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/alchol-booster-35837/
