But, I think the answer to both is "yes". You can use backset to do either. I would stick to the amounts suggested though (about 20-25%). It lowers PH and makes things slightly more acidic....which can benefit either scenario. Too much backset would make the PH too low and you'd get bad conversion on your mash, and/or bad conversion in your fermenter as well.
