Booster substitute?

Recommended Posts

While my LHBS stocks the MrB refills, they do not carry the booster packs that would be used for a basic refill mix.

 

What would be a good substitute for the booster? Please don't suggest the DME/LME because that would change the colour and mouth feel. I'm looking for an exact(it) substitute for the booster.

 

Would Coopers Brew Enhancer I or II work? The LHBS carries those.

Thanks Rick.

 

My issue is I still haven't made all of the MrB basic refill recipes (ex refill + booster), so I'm still not sure what each one tastes like itself. I figure I should probably get to know all of these before I go any further with experimentation.

 

Also, my wife is a light beer drinker. I'd like to make the CAL for her in the basic recipe way just to see if she likes it.

 

I thought about just doing 2 CAL's in one LBK, but then I thought that might make the beer stronger than the basic recipe.

You won't get an EXACT substitute because it's a proprietary product and the exact ratio of dextrins and dextrose isn't available. But Jim's recommendation will probably get you pretty close.
