Changing Alcohol %

Written by Oz Brew Crew

August 7, 2020

You can control the alcohol content of your brew by increasing or decreasing the amount of brewing sugar you use.

However, reducing just your sugar level may result in a thinner, lighter bodied beer with less taste.

To compensate for this, most pre-mixed Mid-Strength recipes have additional malts or starches to help maintain flavour and body to the beer.

Recipe Kits like TUBS Mid-Strength range have compensated for any lack of flavour by supplying a high quality blend of brewing sugars along with a 100% malt extract brew. See the DOWNLOADS section for more information on TUBS.
