Ended up not brewing this today. My efficiency is so low that I would have to add extract to replace the grains I couldn't fit in the mash tun, and I would have had to use dry yeast, I'd rather wait for my mill and produce a starter of liquid yeast and do it right if I'm dropping this much on a recipe. Lol. Let me know how it turns out!
candy sugar in the boil I presume? Does it matter when?
I think candi usually goes in late into the boil, maybe last 10-15mins? It's just a sugar boost, so it doesn't really need to be in there the whole time, and it might be better to wait until your early hops have been utilized before gumming up the works with the dark sugar.
I am not a fan of black beers at all and I'm a big fan of this beer. The Citra & Nelson combo is so money. Use those two together in any other style of beer and people will love it. Tripel, pale, double ipa, quad, etc. They've all worked for me.
