I'd like to make a lighter bodied beer and I understand rice syrup solids are the thing to use. For a 5 gallon batch how much should one add and at what point in the process? Thanks

Rice Syrup Solids are EXPENSIVE, for some reason. They seem to run at about $5 a pound, more than DME.

Corn Sugar, which seems to work just as good to thin out a batch, runs about $1.50 a pound.

Your best bet is to keep non-malt sugars at 20% or less of your fermentables.

thanks for your help. I read about the non-malt sugars kept less than 20% because it causes off flavors in the beer which sounds like very good advice. the beer calculus thing is amazing and I haven't stopped "creating" since!
