So I ran a few searches for DME, and came up empty. I think we could use some additional search functionality for short acronyms, because searching "DME bottling" is the same as searching "bottling."
Anyway! I'm considering using DME in place of corn sugar to bottle my next batch. From what I've read, DME gives a bit more "beer" flavor, cuts down on the cider flavor, and produces smaller bubbles in the finished product, which is exactly what I'd want in the stout I'm going to brew.
How much would using DME affect the ABV% of my finished beer Vs. corn sugar, or would there be no change at all? Does anyone have any first hand experience here? Corn sugar seems
to be the overall method of choice, but I'm not sure if that's because of the quality of the finished product or the price. Does DME carbonate at higher or lower pressure? If higher, has anyone had bottle bomb issues?
There's probably a thread somewhere in here with details, but I just couldn't dig it up with the Search button. It's probably in Revvy's sig, and I just missed it.
