How Adding grain to get better gravity now

Postby vancutan » Wed Feb 15, 2017 11:54 pm

So i read that when you buy pre-milled grains they are not milled quite as fine as they should be. It was suggested to buy a bit more grian to help get a bit more sugar. my questiong is if i add more grain to the mash should i just add more pale malt( for example) or do i need to add proportional amounts of every grain in the bill?
One more quick question, what do you guys think of the 14 oz ABV boost you can buy to add durring the boil to help correct the poast boil gravity?
Thanks Yall

While my grain mill does mill a little finer than our good hosts here when I order pre-milled grains, I never make any adjustments. I just don't think it is worth it.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

I would not use the boost rather I would uses DME if you want to make corrections to the OG. like Took I would not worry to much about it
