will the extract affect the S.G. of the end result? I added the extract after the boil (4oz) and its settled at about 1.018 (supposed to be 1.012-1.014).

Boilermakers

Heres a thought;

The boiler maker is adding shot of whiskey to a beer. Would there be a way to incorporate that in the brew process? Maybe adding it in the secodnary, or before bottling?
