Re: Best ingredients to make a stronger beer
Yes, yes, and Yes.
Any "sugar" that you add will ferment into alcohol and CO2. Table
sugar, dextrose (corn sugar), etc. are 100% fermentable. Dried Malt
Extract is less than 100% fermentable, but it will work the same as
sugar. You get more "body" with the DME due to the unfermentables that
are also in it. Generally, anything "sweet" is fermentable (juices,
etc.) to varying degrees.
So, pure sugars will give you more alcohol and "thin" out the beer some,
while malt extract will give you more alcohol and give the beer more
