The boost is corn sugar. You can make the kit without it but it will have a really low alcohol content. Also, the yeast that comes with those is pretty bad. If you buy some safale 05 or 04, you will make better beer.

With the witty monk, you do not need booster. Here is a link to the instructions, just click "instructions" or "print brewing instructions."

Hope this helps!

Yep, you use the booster with single can kits, just use both cans in the batch.
