    Brewing this (or a version of it anyway...) for the final round of a knockout competition. I
    ordered the D-90, but really wavered back and forth between that and the D-180. Candi

    No, CSI can correct me if I'm wrong, but for this style of beer, you DO want the temperature to
    stay in the high 70's or low 80's (no less than 78 F and no more than 83 F) in order to achieve
    high att...

    Sorry I should have been more specific. I was referring to the first running boil down. Not the
    entire batch boil. If I omit that first running boil down do I need to compensate with adding
    more sugar...

    Do you prefer the "traditional" recipe? I did mine with 10lbs of Bel Pils, 5lbs Bel Pale, threw
    in 1lb of Special B, 2lbs of D-180 (along with the boildown) and used Magnum. Finished out at
    1.008 and ...

    I don't know if CSI is on his computer today so here is my take: To hit the OG and volume into
    the fermenter right on the numbers you have to have a good idea what efficiency your system
    has, plus you...

    Just have to come in here to say, my quad I brewed with help in this thread was tapped last
    night... by far and away the best beer I've brewed to date. Didn't really use the recipe here
    but CSI and Ke...

    yes, i used this: seen this with a number of different Lovibond designations, (260, 275,
    300L). It's basically sucrose with dye in it...and not a lot of color or flavor contribution.
    The liquid candi...

    Doh!! I just brewed this last night! Couldn't find 275 Lovibond, so I used enough 180 Lovibond
    to get me to 18 srm. Lol oh well. It's a pretty color.The odd thing about the 275L rock candi
    is that the...

    I think that the dark sugar I find here is different from US dark candy...Here you can see the
    colorDid you use the rock candi?
