Anyone think it's a better idea to just add more sugar/candi and save the 2 extra lbs of LME for my next brew?
I vote sugar for a lower fg.

Thanks! I think I'm going to go through with it this weekend and I will just add some extra sugar.

Final question regarding the DME. I was going to make a 4L starter for a 6 gallon batch, which will take 14oz of DME. Anything wrong with just pitching almost the whole 1lb of amber DME that this extract recipe calls for from my 4L starter into the carboy and calling it a day? I can just use 14 oz in the starter and add 2oz to the boil, adjusting hops as necessary (doing a 4G boil and topping off with H2O anyway).

I brewed up the extract version this weekend. Fermenter is bubbling away and giving off a beautiful banana smell. Can't wait for it to be ready.

Heya! I got all the ingredients, sort of I need to go back and swap some misplaced hops that I drove home with, but I digress.

Instead of the 1.5 lb of candy sugar, i remembered that I had 1lb of D-90 candy syrup in my basement I've been wanting to get rid of. I went ahead and got light DME instead of amber to compensate for the color, but it will still come out with a copper to red to brown color according to hopville.

Will the D-90 candi syrup change anything other than color?

Should I go ahead and invert a 1/2lb of sugar to add also? or will the 1lb be enough?

Thanks!

Question from a noob. If I want to get 6 gallons out of this, should I boil 7ish gallons of water (counting on evaporation)? I ask because I would like to not have to top it off with water.

I started with 6.5 gallons of water and ended up with a little less than 5.5 gallons of product. This gave me about 5 gallons of beer to bottle. I leave the stuff in the bottom of the fermenter out of the final bottling product.

Instead of the WLP500 I bought 1 smack pack of the wyeast 3787 trappist high gavity. I have an O.K. starter in the fridge now settling out the yeast for tonight.

Anyway, what differences will I see between the 2 yeast strains?
Home brew guy just shrugged and said its pretty much the same so I went with it, now Im all like crap, should just followed the recipe....

It totally depends on your setup. Boil vigor, pot diameter, etc. all play huge roles.

D-90 is probably best used in a dubbel or quad. The darker syrups create intense flavor contributions. You could use it in a Westmalle Dubbel as only 1lb of D-90 is required. Here's the recipe link:
