I thought I was going to focus on just yucca root, which I have coming Monday, but I also want to include maltdextrine. Now I have two pretty good root beer recipes and would like to improve mouthfeel and head/retention with my recipes. I have been doing some looking on how much yucca root to use and how much maltdextrine to use. I cannot come up with any solid numbers for either, but I kind of have at least a starting point for maltdextrine.
Based on my findings, and some basic math, it seems that 1oz maltdextrine per gallon is a good place to start. I haven't tested this yet but hopefully I can get some confirmation on those more experienced with this stuff. Now I have been having an impossible time trying to find ANYTHING in regards to brewing with yucca root and how much to use, or again to even figure out a starting point. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
