    So 7 days had passed, I measured the gravity to 1.012 and had a sample. All the mishaps
    considered it unquestionably had that Belgian character of sweet banana aroma, balanced with
    reminiscent flavour...

    First off I love your syrup.With that being said you keep posting that in this thread.... I
    went to your link and then went back 2 or 3 pages of the current dialogue and see nothing
    refrencing this re...

    When is the candi syrup added to this? During the mash or boil? Towards the end of the boil
    right?Most call for it to be added 10 min prior to flameout. We've added the D-180 both at
    flameout and T-10...

    You might be right - as far as how many points it would add, I'd have to run it through
    beersmith. I just thought if he missed his OG by that much it might be worth a shotSince the
    PPG of granular suc...

    I'm no expert but I think you can boil a lb of sugar and add it at high krausen. It will
    effectively raise your OG by 3 or 4 points and also help dry the beer out to achieve your
    desired FG...Would th...

    Tested another one right now, sure it's already good but I think some age is worth wait! I
    think I prefer rochefort 10 clone (from csi Web site) despite I had poor attenuation on this
    one!But I also p...

    FANTASTIC! I've handed out a couple of bottles to beer buds. All have enjoyed it and two
    commented that it may be the best quad they've ever had. One asked if he could come over next
    brew day to watch...

    Got mine transferred to secondary over the weekend. Was wondering if you all think this is too
    much headspace for a prolonged secondary? Due to the excessive blow off there is about .5
    gallons to 1 ga...

    Since I'll be brewing this in a months time I have a few points I'd like to have clarified. The
    recipe/PDF on the CSI website lists Cara 8, yet 001/002 says Cara 45. Which ºL cara malt should
    I shop f...
