I also suspected that you wanted the brown sugar in the MASH so I mixed it in with the grains.
So locally I can find Torani syrups at a ton of places but naturally not a single one of them carried the flavor I needed for this recipe. So I ended up going with the amazon prime bottle which is about double the cost of the same 750ml size bottles at any local store.
In a few days I will mix up the simply lemonade / blood orange extract and add that with the second pack of yeast. Then in 2 1/2 weeks I will move to a keg or secondary if i haven't drank an existing keg empty yet.
Their is only slight variances from light to dark brown sugar, so you will be fine....I add my brown sugar to the boil, so that I get 100% extraction from it, where as if you add it to the mash, a small portion could get caught up in the grain (could, don't have data on several brews done both ways to compare, so it's a theory).... Their is a online store called lollipop that sells syrups for $5 a bottle and if you buy 2 shippings free, so try them next time.
