Why not just use straight priming sugar?

From what I understand, Maltodextrin will add a very small amount of sweetness, but primarily will add mouth feel. I think it's recommended 4 oz per 5 gallon batch if I remember right ... more if you want it thicker ... at bottling time. I'm no expert though .. I am sure there are more qualified people to answer this questions. I just thought I would give it a try!

It is 12% fermentable so cut back just a hair on the priming sugar.

Doesnt How to Brew say that Malto can give the drinker some rancid gas?

hmm... I used 8oz in my 5G batch of banana cream ale.. but haven't drank enough at any one time to know if gas is a problem...
I'll have to pay more attention
