How do I add more alcohol to my home brews?
Sugar will drive more alcohol in your home brew.
You can do this a number of different ways, which might included the following…
- Add more grain to your recipe i.e if you grain bill says 9 lbs of two row, add 11lbs. I would look for recipes with the same style of beer with different alcohol levels. You’ll see this through the difference the amount of grain used.
- You can use malt extract as well. Similar to above, you’ll want to check recipes before you start adding so you’ll know what to expect.
