So I have a few pounds of grain left from this year's brew season that I need to use up. Unfortunately, I can only buy in bulk, and with a relocation in the near future it doesn't seem smart to buy another year's supply of malt just yet. My problem is, I don't have enough malt to brew my usual six gallons when shooting for an abv of 4.5-ish and I don't want to get a smaller fermenter just for this batch. So I thought why not do as the Belgians do and fortify my grist with candi syrup to reach my target OG. I have not decided on a specific style yet (and I guess it won't meet any bjcp criteria anyway), but what would be a tolerable percentage of syrup? Depending on what calculator I use, I end up with an OG of about 1.021 with the grain I got, taking me in the vicinity of 2%abv.
