How much does the timing of the sugar addition affect attenuation and why? Belgian candi sugar
is just invert sugar, right? I plan to do this one again soon. my first attempt which was about
9 months ...

Has anyone had an opportunity to do the clone of Ommegang bpa? Something similar?Are regular
fuggles a decent enough substitute for this variety?

So I've tried my aforementioned recipe, and here's the scoop:I used malted wheat, which was not
right. I believe it is important to use unmalted wheat, and I've heard you can even just use

I have been doing this on a few of my beers, one being an IPA, and the result was a huge oak
flavor, more tannins and less smooth flavors. I did not steam mine chips, but I figured the

RDWHAHB. It'll take off all too soon. Your concern shouldn't be will the yeast begin

You should put some yeast nutrient in for the first few days too, especially since it's
underpitched.Would you boil that first? I always tell myself to do so, but in such cases as
