DME + Booster Question

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I guess it qualifies as a basic recipe. Anyway, forgive me if this has been asked before, but is it okay to use booster and DME at the same time? I have a pound of Light DME that I'm going to add to a Classic American Light refill that I have. I'm adding some Willamette also. I have three booster packs, and I'm considering throwing one, or maybe two in there as well.

Thanks guys! With the light DME I usually end up around 5.3% abv. I figure two booster packs and I'm looking at around 6.6%. One of them and that's maybe 5.95% I guess? I could use all three, but I don't want a beer quite that big. I'm going to pitch US-05. I just love that yeast!

I doubt that this would qualify as true "Light" beer anymore, but sounds good!

??? CAL is a great base, but I'm sure you're right, it's never light anymore when I'm done with it.

Yes, assuming 6 oz booster packs.

 

The new smaller ones, 6 oz sounds about right.

Just an update, I brewed this today with 2 booster pouches and the pound of light DME like I said. I did a 10 minute boil on 1 package of Willamette pellets, and left it in the wort. I got an OG of 1.069! It's going to pack a punch!
