Did you add the organic maple syrup to the boil or did you use it for bottling? How much did you use? I am looking forward to hearing how this turns out.

For priming. I used one cup.

I usually use different types of honey to prime and have used maple syrup with a porter and brown ale before.

Expensive, but works!

Tried one after two weeks in bottle. I've honestly have never had an amber ale, but this is good. Touch of sweetness, touch of bitterness. Sure it will be even better with a bit more age to it!

Your version has a better amber color to it than mine usually has. Which version of the recipe did you brew?

Followed your first recipe to a T. I did use leaf hops instead of pellets....primed with maple syrup....

After 4 weeks in the bottle, my friends and I dove into this beer! Everyone enjoyed it! Took a few to a BYOB sushi place and a few more the following day as we brewed!

Thanks for posting recipe. Think I may need to drop this into the rotation!

I am looking for a beer I can brew on 2 November (the first opportunity I will get to brew) and then serve on 15 December. Is it pushing it to try that with this recipe?

I am thinking 10 days in fermentation, then 3 weeks in the bottle and a week and a half in the fridge before serving it.

If I were to make a change to deal with the short time I may consider less late hops as I am not giving it enough time for the hop flavour to mellow.

You could get away with 2 or 3 in primary. Bottle for two weeks. Two days in fridge.

May want to do an IPA to be safe.

If you do go with 10 days primary please post the results. I have always let this go 3 weeks in my primary as a minimum just to be safe. This does not mean that 10-14 days would not be enough time. I have not tried to turn it around this quickly yet.

I made something similar to this and bottled after 8 days in primary. I served it 4 weeks later and it was good. But the hops were a bit strong. A week after that the hops had mellowed and it was ridiculously good!
