Had thought of that . The sd super is from a beer i did in july planning to brew friday, did a starter last night and it's not looking to lively, may just get some us-05 and go with that. Was planning to cold crash bring it back in side and then add the molasses then keg after a few days.

I do not think the flavor you want from the molasses is going to work. But once it is done put some in a sample glass and play with it to see if it works.

I thought of that. Using sd super from a harvest i did in july. Put it in a starter last night and it's not looking to lively right now. May end up going with us-05. Planning to cold crash and taking it back inside then adding the molasses for a few days before I keg.

Would you suggest more molasses or add it a different point

You could consider a milder molasses for your brew too. Having used blackstrap molasses as a base for a root beer I made, I can offer the warning that it is a very strong flavor, almost bitter and I would not use it again. I will try a lighter molasses next time, or perhaps a natural sugar such as muscovado, which is like a brown sugar except the molasses-type ingredients have not been removed and then added back in the way commercial brown sugar is. It is completely unrefined instead.

When would you add it. I was going to transfer to my secondary then add the molasses about three days before kegging. How much do you think I should use. was going with 8 oz
