I am going to attempt my first mini-mash this weekend. I have a recipe for
a mini-mash that states "Mash 3 lb. US 2-row pale malt and the specialty
grains at 122F..." 4 oz. of US 60L crystal malt is a (one of the)
"specialty grains." After this mash, at the stage where the DME is added, I
was also supposed to add 1/4lb. of Malto-dextrin. I haven't used
Malto-dextrin before and I don't even know what it looks like (if it is a
powder, liquid, grain, etc.). Does the Malto-dextrin go in during the mash
or should I add it with the DME (after the mash)?
Thanks in advance.
