Use Booster™ to add alcohol and body to any recipe without the dry, cidery taste that comes from using sugar. Each pouch of Booster™ adds about 0.65% ABV per batch.

Booster™ is made from corn syrup solids and is ideally suited for use as a brewing adjunct. It provides a full and balanced range of both fermentable and unfermentable sugars that are designed to mimic the carbohydrate profile of all-malt wort, consisting of 8% glucose, 56% maltose, 16% maltotriose, and 20% dextrins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gr62063 from hot water or cold? doesnt seem to matter directions for booster used to call for mixing in cold water, now all the recipes call for adding with the HME into hot water. What's the deal. New size allows for better flexibiity and therefore is good. I have a batch made with 2 of the 12oz boosters because the directions changed and didnt mention the new size, so I'll see how that comes out. Otherwise, booster is ok, I've only noticed it making one batch (Chug a Lugger) seem thick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrHighLife from Easy to use I have just added one 6.25 ounce package into a beer mix I have not tried before, so I will not be able to tell the overall effect. However; after reading the reviews, I can say it was not hard to use at all. I added the contents to the 4 quarts of water used for making the wort. It clumped up immediately, but patiently stirred over a period of about ten minutes and the mixture broke apart and eventually dissolved completely.This was before boiling the water and then adding the extract, so I am sure that once the water had reached boiling, the remaining clumps would have dissolved.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ohio from Smaller Size The new smaller size of booster is less convenient than the older, larger, size for me. I now buy twice as many to get the same amount. It is still the same product which I like and use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Berny from what is it? I got it with no instructions, there is no mention in the directions and I have no idea what to do with it after reading the blog. It would be nice if I put it in the search engine for mr beer and it would tell me what to do with it. Even the page that says more information has NOTHING on it for how to use. I am gonna try to dump it in the wort and see what happens. initially since it is sugar I thought to use it when bottling but i get the impression to use it early. Hope nothing is runied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Malashka from Confusing for a newbee I've got it "free" with a refill I ordered and was confused what it was at all, booster to boost what? My confidence as a brew maker haha? :D It would be nice to have some at least basic instructions on the site about how to use it. Plus, everyone is mentioning about the "old style", "new style" - what? Now it's even more confusing! I've got 2 Boosters like 2 months ago, I assume they are the "new style" ones? Thanks.

Does the booster expire? If so, will it still work if expired?

Asked by: ZZ TOP
The Booster is essentially dried sugar. Keep the packages sealed (no rips or holes in the foil) and it will be fine until even after helsinki freezes over.

I've made two brews//First was Golden Ale turned out great. 2nd Pale ale a little tasteless in comparison. I purchased both LME Softpak and Brewmax Booster. Whats diference in these as both look like they boost ABV ? Does Softpak also enhance flavor?

Asked by: Budman56
The softpacks are unhopped, so they do not add any flavor. What they do is add to the body and mouthfeel of the finished product. They essentially take a thin and tasteless lo-cal/lo-carb beer up to a craftbeer status-- or closer to such a status if you didn't add the softpacks...

How many bottle will this booster fill up?

Asked by: Bobby Cali
The Booster is dissolved in your semi-hot brewing water before you bring it to a boil for a few minutes to kill any bugs and bad vibes in it. The flavored syrup is added and stirred well-in AFTER you turn-off the heat. The Booster adds very little if any volume to the amount of the wort ready to be fermented.
