This looks good, I'd expect the colour to be exactly what you're shooting for. Please update as it progresses.

I brewed this today and had to adjust the hops schedule as the EKG hops they had at my LHBS was lower than I anticipated. It was an easy brew day and I can't wait to see how this one turns out. I also hit my OG right on target.

Couple quick questions, what did you use for candi sugar (home made, stuff form a brew supply, syrup/hard). And how dark was the wort?

The recipe sounds good!

I used the following, and it was a perfect amber color. I will take a picture of the carboy tonight and post it. I was very pleased with how it looks. I hope I will be pleased with how it tastes. Oh, and I forgot that I added some maltodextrin so I will update the recipe again.

Cool. I think that my home-made candi syrup wasn't as dark as that stuff must be.

Probably not. I was stoked when my LHBS started carrying it. I have a couple pounds stockpiled now as it works very well. It is a bit pricey though.

I have yet to try to make my own candi syrup. I have thought about it a couple times, but I'm trying to get my grain roasting mastered before I take on another experiment.

I think I'm going to buy some of the candi syrup when I get a chance, and with it as a guide hopefully make some of my own.

Sweet. You have to let me know if are able to replicate it. I would love to know that process.

The process itself is quite simple, the main difficulty is time. My last batch, I started cooking my syrup on the stove as soon as I got home, and I added the resulting syrup to the wort at flameout...probably 2 hours, and I didn't get the syrup as dark as I wanted to/should have. Now I know that I'll need to make the syrup up ahead of time.
