Crown or Rogers golden corn syrup? if so its glucose,glucose-frutose,water,salt,vanillin(Vanilla)
What you posted is roughly 4-6% sugar? you could go up and drop some grain, this too will get your FG down. My houblon clone is 15.7% sugar but its a lighter color beer than `la chouffe and FG is 1.006-8 everytime.
I've used another brand of cane syrup before in different beers, in the lighter beer the vanilla came thur thankfully it was a nice touch.
So thats something you may want to think about if adding more, heck you could just add plain sugar along with your normal amount.
Adjusting the sugar ratio can get tricking as it effects the body & color really fast, it took me awhile to settle on what I feel is correct (houblon copy).
So creep up on the sugar-grain ratio and if you feel the color is too lite just add it before the boil, it will
darken over the 90min boil.
Research is what my wife calls it
Next thing you know your taking a couple trips per yr $$$$...
But hey somebody has to do the hardwork of visiting breweries and sampling all those beer
