I'd like to make a lighter bodied beer and I understand rice syrup solids are the thing to use. For a 5 gallon batch how much should one add and at what point in the process? Thanks

How much depends on the recipe. Here is one that uses rice syrup from the database:

If you want to make your own recipe, you can plug rice syrup in as a fermentable in Beer Calculus:

You add it at the same time you add the extract. I'm assuming you are doing extract.

Rice Syrup Solids are EXPENSIVE, for some reason. They seem to run at about $5 a pound, more than DME.

Corn Sugar, which seems to work just as good to thin out a batch, runs about $1.50 a pound.

Your best bet is to keep non-malt sugars at 20% or less of your fermentables.

thanks for your help. I read about the non-malt sugars kept less than 20% because it causes off flavors in the beer which sounds like very good advice. the beer calculus thing is amazing and I haven't stopped "creating" since!
