My buddy makes maple syrup and wants me to make a batch using maple sap instead of water in the next few weeks here. Naturally, there is an expectation and desire to have maple flavor in the final product. I have been thinking that a brown ale or porter would be good with a maple flavor.

I have been wanting to make this brown ale anyway, and it seems like it could be a good base for the maple beer.

My plan is to make the beer pretty much per the original recipe, except maybe using Marris Otter base to get a little more of the biscuity, etc. that it brings, use maple sap instead of water, maybe even prime the kegs w/ maple syrup, then, for flavor, add some (boiled)dark syrup to the kegs and store cold to prevent additional fermentation.

Because of the batch size (30 gallons) I will have multiple kegs to experiment with and compare. And as I use 2 fermenters, will probably split the batch with 2 different yeasts. (Thinking 04 and Notty or maybe 04 and Windsor)

If anybody has any ideas, suggestions, or tips, please let me know!

I will report back to this thread with results, etc!

sleepystevenson ; I recon you would have to take into consideration the amount of sugar in 30+ gallons of sap . May not be much really as they have to evaporate off a lot of water to make maple syrup sweet.
What is the gravity of sap ? Surely more than water .
Now I would think that this would make a beer that tasted more like a bottle of sugar free syrup . How about trying a nut brown from the store and adding in some sap to see how it would taste ?

How about pasteurize the sap and then add it in to the wort before fermenting ? that would eat up the sugar but leave the taste .

I used molasses in a nut brown and it tasted good .

Just kegged this today and man it tastes good. Came out a little on the higher ABV side (6.2%) because I boiled off too much, but still can't wait for this to carb up. Going to be my best beer yet!

The longer it sits the better it gets ! I sure wish I would have saved back more of it to age . I only have 4 bottles . Will wait for them to get about 6 months before drinking .

I've had my batch on tap for three weeks and just love this stuff. My wife and I spent the weekend in downtown Seattle for her birthday and hit several pubs. I tried several other browns and they all pale in comparison to this Nut Brown.

This is going to be a regular part of my rotation. Good stuff!

I must make a new batch of this . I have 6 cases of beer that is all most likely going to see the drain in my sink as I do not like them and one more batch fermenting that should be good . I think from now on I may just stick with this as myself and others all love it and much better amber and maybe some no boil blonde and pilsner dry hopped .
