Default Alcohol Boost and FG

I added an AHS 1% alcohol boost to my wort during brewing. The FG that AHS recommends with the brown ale kit I brewed is 1.013. Quick question; will the boost affect what this suggested FG should be?

It's almost all cane sugar that the yeast will inhale. Shouldn't see too much of a fg change.

Awesome thanks. Just tested it out of curiosity and its right at 1.013. Slightly boozey tasting but I assume that will condition out?

Yep. Green beer tastes a little rough around the edges, so give it a few more weeks and you'll be all set.
