Default What can I use instead of Lyle's Golden Syrup

Looking to do the ole OSH clone. Demerera sugar is available at the LHBS, but Lyle's Golden isn't.

I've used corn syrup in its place with decent results.

Just make sure you don't get the vanilla infused stuff.

You may be able to get it in an English speciality store if you really have to, but I would be inclined to follow Dude's advice.

It's a liquid invert sugar.
I'm wondering if light molasses might do.

You can make your own.

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invert_sugar

"Partially inverted sugar syrup can be home-made without the use of enzymes. When making a simple sugar syrup, add about one gram of organic acid, such as citric acid or ascorbic acid, per kilogram of sugar. Cream of tartar or fresh lemon juice can also be used instead. Boiling time needs to be extended to about 20 minutes. This preparation will hydrolyse enough of the sucrose to effectively prevent crystallization, without giving a noticeably sour taste. A way to make an invert sugar syrup without the use of acids or enzymes is to bring a mixture of two parts granulated sucrose and one part water to a boil and then reduce the heat to a low simmer for five to seven minutes until the solution becomes clear."

You've probably found it by now, but it is available at Whole Foods.

Thanks! Having to pay $7-10 in shipping for a $5 tin of syrup is expensive. The whole foods is a 30 minute drive from my house, but they have it!!

Default Treacle Details

Here is some information I dug up concerning Treacle v Molasses. Perhaps this primer will assist you in finding a substitute, or an on line merchant that carries the real deal.

It's ridiculously expensive when you can make your own for less than 50 cents a pound. I have a wiki article in my sig that shows how. Although, I'm not sure if there is a difference in flavor from liquid to solid invert sugar.
