Should I add Maltodextrin during fermentation?
I have a couple of GF brews under my belt, and last week I started one. In the past I've added maltodextrin but am not totally sure what it has meant for the final product. I forgot about it during this brew, but is that something that I need and could add now? Just dissolve some into some water, cool and pitch?
The beer was brewed last Wednesday, and active fermentation seems to have already subsided, but I'm in no rush and will let it sit for another 2 1/2 weeks.
