Default Golden Syrup

Hi all,
I'm currently brewing a clone of McEwan's Scotch Ale and they call for Lyle's Golden Syrup. I can't find it any place here in Missoula. I've searched in specialty grocery stores, regular grocery stores, brew stores ect... I'm looking to see if anyone knows possibly where I can get the stuff in the states or if anyone knows any substitution. Corn syrup just won't cut it. I tasted the stuff and hell if I'm putting that in my beer. I'd rather use some sort of sugar. Anyhow any advice would be really handy.

Cheers!

Joe

In baking, I've heard you can substitute equal parts of light corn syrup and honey for it or 2 parts light corn syrup and one part molasses, but it's not QUITE the same.

Could order it online if you have the time... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BTB66M/...SIN=B000BTB66M

If all else fails then try making an invert sugar syrup.

You can find it at World Market if you have one near you. It will be bloody expensive though.

edit: Amazon

I've seen this popping up in local supermarkets more and more. It's usually in the sugar syrup section and some supermarkets have even added a British section with teas, biscuits, Heinz Baked Beans, Mushy Peas and the REAL Cadbury Chocolate (not the stuff made on contract by Hershey).

I use LGS frequently in Bitters and other British beers. It usually runs about $5+ here in the states. It's only around 50p in the UK!

That isn't really shipping from Amazon so his cost would be $11.73 for a tin.
And you would never know when it will show up if it shows up.

We always carry it if you cant find it locally:

Bump: I'm brewing a Wee Heavy tomorrow and was hoping to substitute Jaggery for Lyle's. Looking for feedback.
