Had a good amount of flavor to it. A lot more than bmc lite
Would you suggest leaving it unchanged? came out about 3.93%?
I thought about it more, and I think I'd really overall like to boost the hop rate, gravity, and lesser so the ETOH content (5-6%). Would simply buying and adding more of the same type of hops and extract accomplish this?
Also, rice solids only serve to boost alcohol and lighten body, right? So if I removed the rice solids and replaced with malt extract, I would boost alcohol without lightening the body?
How much malt extract would it take to replace 1 lbs. of rice solids?
