Maple Beer Recipe Reccomendations
Just wondering if anybody had any suggestions for an upcoming AG batch I am planning on. I am new to AG and have never done anything maple other than as a carbonation method with extract. I am planning on a simple 5 gallong batch and have 13.8lbs of fresh Canadian 2 row Barley from a farm in my area. So I would like to incorporate that somehow in this batch.

Now, when I was at a brewery in Picton(Barley Days) I was told that the master brewer adds his maple syrup into the fermenter 5 days prior with the yeast added to the maple syrup(or cherries) and then adds the wort after 5 days.

So I guess my main question is what ratio to use in this recipe. I was thinking something along the lines of:

7lbs of the 2Row Malted Barley
1lb Munich
1lb somthing else
x ammount of maple syrup
Utilising the method from above.

If you are in maple country, you could try to use sap instead of water. It won't add that many fermentables as this is only equal to about a pint of syrup, but it would be neat to try. We are only a couple of months from sap season!

Thanks guys, I've considered the maple sap but I want to go with the syrup since it is stronger(more expensive though). And thanks for the recipe Harley, I will somehow incorporate it with the Canadian Two Row I have.
