I forgot to add some maltodextrin to my spiced ale!

I know its normally added during the boil.

Could I add it in my 2ndary ? How long to boil ?

Since its an extract brew, I was some more body, also want to do this since I have abt a liter to top up on my 2ndary.

I have never tried this but it looks like others have with some success. Here is a link to some discussions on this forum. The actual discussion is about adding sweetness but there is a fair amount of discussion about adding the malto-dextrin at bottling time. If it were me, I would mix up 4 oz of malto-dextrin and boil it with the bottling sugar.
wait....what do you mean all the beer is gone!

Since malto dextrine is only about 5% frementable, as long as it is sterile it should be abe to go in just about anytime.
