Default 8oz vs 4oz maltodextrin

The pouch of malto dextrin I have says use 4oz for 5 gallon batch.
What would the pros/cons of adding the entire 8oz be?

It will turn into a thick dextrine bomb, where the flavor of the maltodextrin will be noticeable. I have made one you don't want to go there. 4oz in 5 gallon is about max.

Thanks I was about to add the entire 8ozs, but decided to back off and add only the 4oz.
Glad I did.

4 oz will add about two "points", 8 oz will add about four.
