So the CdeC has a sugar component to it?

Some of those thickeners,additives,body enhancers,etc are based on sugars or syrups that have a sugar component of one percentage or another. that was my concern with the chocolate syrups.

Default Coopers Irish stout kit+ cocoa powder syrup

'Twas a good beer, top three (out of ten) that I have brewed. Could taste more chocolate-y, it was a little bitter. But it was fun making Black and Tans for the Super Bowl. Next time I'd like it dryer with more abv but all and all it's a decent beer.

That looks good, Joe..

Sorry Rocketsan, I missed your question. Yes, the CdC has sugar. I found the equivalency here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/ind...le_conditioned

Hey BobAgain

I'm geting ready to bottle some Coopers and wanna experiment with doing some liquer addition as the priming sugar but will be adding it to the bottle as opposed to the batch.

Thinking of a CdeC addition to 10 btls, CdeCassis to 10 btls, muscavado sugar to 10 btls - would 5ml of liquer be an appropriate sort of figure or have you simply batch primed in the past?

Cheers!
