Is there a way I can add a bit of mouthfeel to a beer after is been kegged. I have a stout that turned out great as far as favor go, but the mouthfeel just isn't there I feel. I have it kegged with the burbon barrel blocks right now, I guess i was wondering if I could boil up some maltodextrin and added it to the keg or would that ruin the beer. Honestly the beer taste great, but like homebrew i like to tweak things

Cheers

MD is a pure sugar, so dissolve it in boiling water & dump. 4-8 oz.

If you do add it to the keg, be sure to keep checking the pressure. While maltodextrin is pretty much unfermentable, it is sometimes hard to know the purity of it (depending on your source). If it is not pure and has some fermentable sugars mixed in, you could create some serious pressure there (ask me how I know!). :)
