Adding DME to Kama Citra IPA

Has anyone tried adding a Pilsen Light DME (1 lb) to the Kama Citra IPA to up the ABV? How will that effect the recipe you think? And when would I put it in? At beginning of boil with the LME?

Thank you.

It would increase the ABV and would also change the bitterness ratio and the hops profile of the finished beer. You’d want to add more bittering hops at a minimum, unless you want to turn it into a higher abv pale ale.

Easy enough to figure out using a recipe calculator like brewer’s friend

Looks like it drops the IBU by 4 and raises the ABV by about 1. Seems like a fair trade. :slight_smile:
